Jan 18th 2010 10:03PM Not sure why you guys think that the screen don't work properly. I got a few minutes of hands-on time with the device at CES (I think you guys did too). Touch screen works just fine, the processor may be a little underpowered so Android runs slow, but the thing works great. They have a book manager on Android which pulls up the ebook on the e-ink display. check out this short video http://www.youtube.com/releasenetworks#p/a/u/0/g3E8IJNnuhg
Nov 24th 2009 10:20AM This isn't exactly what I've been waiting for, but they are on the right track here. I've been playing with the idea of installing a car-pc, carputer, or whatever they're being called these days, but having Android as the OS running things sound like a much better idea than having Windows. I'm hoping Pioneer or SONY take note and create something that's a little more visually appealing.
Nov 19th 2009 9:42AM I can't wait till T-Mobile flips the switch on their HSDPA+ before then end of the year. Then At&t can no longer claim the fastest 3G network.

Oct 29th 2009 5:48PM Wow, this news is quite old. HTC Source posted this up almost two weeks ago. http://htcsource.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=770&Itemid=50
Sep 11th 2009 9:21AM Personally, I'm excited that the technology can actually do this. However, developers need to find better uses for it. I'd love to see tourism departments of different cities put together interactive tours, pointing out historical landmarks, points of interest, and then also giving you a coupon code for a great restaunrant that's along your route. http://htcsource.com
Sep 10th 2009 4:21PM I'd agree. The UI does seem quite cluttered and does not really have the polish I'd expect from Motorola. The concept of Blur is really nice. They took the simple facebook integration that HTC added to the Hero and took it a few steps further. I know with that the widgets that Motorola put on the Cliq were as nice as those on the Snese UI. http://htcsource.com
Sep 1st 2009 9:49AM I think the trackball is the same size of the one of the myTocuh 3G (aka Magic). Actually, the redesign resembles the Magic a lot more than the Hero. Look at the button placement. The original Hero had them all line up at the top. http://htcsource.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=691&Itemid=1 could the gold trim indicate Sprint?
Aug 31st 2009 5:01PM Once the phone launches, you'll have the option to pick it up from 3rd party vendors (Amazin, The Shack, Wirefly) probably for about $149. Onnly problem is that they will only give you that price if you are a NEW customer. If you're a Sprint customer already you'll have to pay the full $349
Aug 31st 2009 4:57PM hmm... install Android on this and you should see the price fall! The HTC Hero is only about $550 for an unlocked version. I'm hoping that when it hits Sprint in the next few months that the Hero will sit that the sweet $199 price point.
