HTC Sense Port for BlackBerry Torch
Well, obviously I'm a happy BlackBerry user currently (although I will admit the EVO 3D caught my eye), but one of the things I've seen on HTC Android phones is the HTC Sense. The fact is, I am wondering if it is possible to get this HTC Sense (with animated weather) on the BlackBerry Torch 9800 in any way. The reason for this is the animated weather.
Due to a propietry setup, I cannot swap away from BlackBerry and am stuck with it. That and I bought my Torch a month ago and my mum demands I keep it for 2 years before changing again (cheers mum, if I'd known that I'd have signed a contract...)
So, is there any way to do this? It would be a showstealer for me

This is similar to dropping a Ferrari 599 engine into a Toyota Corolla. Is it possible? Sure, anything is possible. But for the amount of money and time it would take, you could buy the Ferrari new and then some.
All you can really do is buy an HTC Android phone to play with and not activate it. If your Blackberry can do tethering in infrastructure mode, you could even have WiFi access on your new HTC via your a BB tether app.
Since the PlayBook tablet is based on QNX, would a port be easier to be done on it?
Also, tethering is not a possibility with only 500MB data a month (I'm with the infamous O2-UK that make VZW + AT&T combined look like money-saving options, you pay £5 for the data, and £7.50 to tether it, a month)

Hey Palad nice to see you here! A theme that simulates HTC Sense is as close as you'll get to having Sense on a Blackberry.
BeWeather will give you semi animated weather. Not quite the same as HTC weather widget, but close and a great app!
Tell Avt I said hey! I don't post over there anymore.

If you're getting a tablet, why not get the HTC Flyer? It comes with Sense UI built in
Which brings me nicely to an off-topic question. That Flash app I have created, how easy would it be to port it to a format for Android?
