    Ok I have 2 observations about this video and what you like about Sense UI's Weather Widgets.

    1. The full screen didn't appear to "animate" so to speak. But rather, it updated when he went to the screen. After a quick movement the picture sat still. He then changed to another city and that one refreshed. Pretty cool but not necessarily animating from what I saw.

    2. The home Weather one is screwed. it went from 9:25 to 9:26 to 9:27 in about 8 seconds.

    The email "sheets" looked really cool to me. I liked that best.

    This stuff will be attainable on Droid once (if) it gets rooted. There will be roms that we can load. I am looking forward to it too.

    You'd hope HTC begins to tweak their phones. In the last 2 years they must have developed as many phones as there are flavors of candy and icecream....or more like the number of stars in the sky at night.

    This is why I have no faith in devices like the Passion/Dragon, etc. HTC has no reason to put all their effort and heart in to one phone. They can simply produce B+ quality phones and move on. I have been hearing the same thing about HTC phones for the past 2 years.

    Kudos to them though..because the sheep will continue to graze.

    So I wonder if we can get our hands on this since we just got 2.1 working.

    Baker...too bad there is no Nexus/Passion for Verizon, unless of course you plan on canceling your service and moving to T-Mobile out of convenience.

    My wife has the Eris and of course it's very nice, but apparently I'm just not one of those that are just drooling over SenseUI. It's ok, I guess.

    I'm with you. A skin that bloats the system, slows things down and offers no real benefit outside some supposed eye candy. eh...Just give me a working 2.1 and I am happy.
