That was true until a few days ago, when the Taiwanese company announced that it will still be see in Microsoft's updated mobile platform, albeit how this will be achieved hasn't been revealed.

Engadget - Some cried and some cheered when Microsoft revealed that handset manufacturers couldn't reskin Windows Phone 7 devices wholesale. But as it turns out, at least one major OEM is still banking on software to help differentiate its phones. HTC's Drew Bamford told Forbes that Sense UI will still appear in the company's Windows Phone 7 creations, and believes it will live on in Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) as well.

Further to that, HTC is also looking to push forth its unique UI onto Google Android's next revision, Android 3.0 (Gingerbread). For more info about HTC's Sense UI on Windows Phone 7, click here.
