All about HTC Hero


The HTC Hero may well be the most anticipated Android handset to debut. If you are anxiously waiting to get your hand son one, you only have to wait a few more days.

The Hero will hit the UK on 21 July and it will sell for £439. The original release date was expected to be July 15; we aren’t sure exactly what has changed.

With its 3.2-inch HVGA display, the HTC Hero is optimized for Web, multimedia and other content while maintaining a small size and weight that fits comfortably in your hand. It also boasts a broad variety of hardware features including a GPS, digital compass, gravity-sensor, 3.5mm stereo headset jack, a 5 mega-pixel autofocus camera and expandable MicroSD memory. HTC Hero also includes a dedicated Search button that goes beyond basic search, providing you with a more natural, contextual search experience that enables you to search through Twitter, locate people in your contact list, find emails in your inbox or search in any other area in Hero.
