Aside from these features, HTC has also developed a new UI to run on the OS that they are calling the HTC Sense that is designed to deliver on three basic principles: Make it Mine, Stay Close and Discover the Unexpected.

Make It Mine
Make It Mine is a concept created with the sense of instilling the idea about feeling like your HTC phone was created for and by you. HTC has designed this UI to be extremely customizable so users can organize how you want to access content in a way that fits you best. You can at a glance view widgets that push content like Twitter feeds, weather and other content to the surface while others may want quick access to business-focused information like email, calendar and world-times. HTC is also introducing a new profile feature called Scenes that will enable users to create different customized content profiles around specific functions or times in their life.

Stay Close
HTC Sense takes a different approach to personal communication by integrating communication channels and applications into one single view enabling you to stay closer to your important contacts. With HTC Sense, friends' Facebook status updates and photos along with their Flickr photos are included with their text messages, emails and call history in a single view.

Discover the Unexpected
HTC Sense is focused on providing a variety of simple yet innovative experiences on your HTC phone. It can be something as basic as turning the phone over to silence a ring or as simple as improving the smart dialer for making calls quicker. HTC Sense also includes perspectives, a new way for viewing your content such as email, photos, Twitter, music and more in different ways.

The HTC Hero will be available to people across Europe in July and in Asia later in the summer. A distinct North American version will be available later in 2009. Check out their first look video below:
