This just showed up on Pocketnow as a render of how HTC will modify their version of Windows Phone 7, and I think its stupid. The image above is simple fake (you can tell), and I would never see HTC doing something this stupid in terms of looks and function. Putting all the work to release something like this is simple a waste of money because:
1) All these things are already a part of the original UI.
2) The color looks gross with the things added
3) Nothing really added to the UI
Now if I was to see HTC adding something, they will always make it worth the development time and look great. HTC is a smart company and they bought someone just to do all this work for them, so I have a high expectation for them.
