HTC has introduced a new version of its HTC Sense user interface for smartphones and tablets with high resolution displays. The new version of Sense runs on the new HTC Flyer tablet, with its 1024 x 600 pixel display and has a few new tricks such as:

  • Support for landscape and portrait views
  • 3D cube-style animation effects when flipping between home screens
  • New full screen widgets including music, books, people and picture widgets

SlashGear also snagged a photo of an HTC phone running a new HTC video chat app for Android. It doesn’t look all that different from Skype, Fring, Facetime, or other mobile video chat apps, but I suppose it’s nice to have another option — although it’s not clear whether HTC will release the app for non-HTC devices. I’m not sure how useful a communications app is if it only lets you call people using hardware from a single manufacturer (unless that manufacturer is Apple, maybe).

You can see some of the features of the new HTC Sense user interface for the HTC Flyer tablet in the MobileCrunch video after the break.
