HTC dropped a present at our door today: an unlocked HTC Hero, all ready for the official Android Community review. We wasted no time in shooting a video unboxing and brief Sense UI overview video, together with a few in-hand photos to whet your (and our!) appetites.
In case you’ve forgotten, the HTC Hero has a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera, HSPA, WiFi b/g and GPS, together with the latest Android OS 1.5 “Cupcake”. Where it differs from HTC’s previous Android devices, however, is in HTC Sense, the company’s new UI which integrates with the open-source OS and adds numerous widgets and other usability improvements.
We’ll have the full review of the HTC Hero very soon, after we’ve had the chance to put it through its paces. First impressions? It’s perhaps the best Android device to-date.
