Thanks to our friends at Phonedog, we are getting a look at what is purported to be an HTC skinning of the Android interface complete with widgets, gadgets, lion, tigers and bears. Best guess, according to John from Phonedog is that its similar to the HTC Touchflo interface for Windows Mobile devices, this time just for Android.

So here we go again, changes to the data plan catalogue for T-mobile are afoot. Seems like the words data plan and changes are coming up all to often lately and this time, while it isn’t awful, it isn’t that groundbreaking either.
