No Sense UI for existing Androids
Sadly, it turns out existing Android smartphones, currently available through T-Mobile and Vodafone, will not get an update with the hot Sense personalization, according to an HTC representative. Because of some licensing terms, the manufacturer is not allowed to deliver  updates to “Google” branded phones.  These include both the T-Mobile G1 and the upcoming myTouch 3G, as well as the Magic, sold by Vodafone in Europe. This would certainly come as an unpleasant surprise to existing Android users, as yesterday we thought there was a chance to see Sense running on these. However, you never know, a good-hearted enthusiast might decide to port it on their own, right?

Does anyone know if this applies to Rogers' Android phones (as they are not Google branded phones)?

I've read on engadgetmobile.com that it will be available for the Rogers' phones though.
