Equilibrio Sense: A Dream that Never Became True

After reading the title, you might be wondering: What the (…) is Equilibrio Sense? Well, it is a theme for HTC Sense for Windows Mobile. Dark Ninja and I have been working on it for quite a while now. This summer, I have been trying to find the perfect design, with nice clean graphics and balance. More than 20 different design concepts were made, but there was only one we were really satisfied with.

Very soon though, when we (Dark Ninja and I) were starting with the actual developing progress, we discovered that it would be an immense job and would take a lot of time. Yet, we continued because of the positive feedback from several people and because of our will to make a serious premium theme for HTC Sense. Then suddenly, there were some unexpected changes in the development of Android for the HD2. Its popularity had increased dramatically. I noticed that Windows Mobile became less and less popular, that it was dying. It was in this situation that we were wondering if it would be of any use to continue the theme. Because if there is no demand, why would we supply it then? We think it is not worth developing for a dying operating system. After all promises, development, and design concepts, we decided to cancel this – in our opinion-  beautiful theme.

So what do you think? Is it worth developing for a dying operating system? Or isn’t Windows Mobile dying yet? Let us know in the comments below!

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
