Default Any chance we will ever see sense 4.0?

I was just curious, 3.6 looks pretty much the same as 3.0. Little disappointed, I feel that 4.0.3 can't shine through the sense theme. I installed CM9 on my buddy's Sensation and it looks fantastic.

We will only see it if a developer falls from the sky and shines us with it.

Newest & Current Beastly Device:
T-Mobile Galaxy S 5 → Stock 4.4.2 ROM by Samsung
Galaxy Tab 10.1 → 4.0.4

Claims that they (HTC, T-Mobile, anyone) don't want to "disrupt" our user experience with 3.0 on the Amaze are BS, IMHO. Problems with Sense 3.0 do NOT need to be continued ... and the enhancements due with Sense 4.0 are, I think, owed us. I bought this phone specifically because an ICS update in 2012 had already been promised.

I want landscape home screens. I want Car Mode restored. I want a better Dock Mode.

If ICS arrives with same ol' Sense overlay, and the problems I've had with three handsets not fixed, I may not even update.
First time Android owner, HTC Amaze 4G.
Was this helpful? Click Thanks. Was I unhelpful? Sorry. Can't bat .400 every day.

HTC said sense 4 was built for s4/tegra 3.

Yeah but it doesn't seem like we have anybody driven to port Sense 4.0. Tis a shame because it seems like it really improved on a lot of weak points that exist in all current Sense UI versions prior to 4.0.

I'm gonna take a crack at it possibly... I just want to get my phone activation straight first. (Tmobile sent me a invalid activation code with my sim card)

hmmm what about the one v, its sporting an s2 and seems to run sense 4.0 fluidly.
then again it doesn't include almost any of the animations but still something to be considered.
