During HTC's press event on Wednesday, I had some quality time with HTC's new Android flagship smartphone, the HTC Hero. With its distinct design HTC introduced a unique blend of form and function that takes Android to new a new level. While the Hero design might not be everybody's favorite, the HTC Hero boasts bevelled edges and an angled 15° bottom. This makes the Hero to fit comfortably in your hand and against your face while you're on a call. The HTC Hero features an anti-fingerprint screen coating for improved smudge-resistance and a longer-lasting, clearer display. Furthermore, the white Hero includes an industry-first Teflon coating which is said to result in an improved, durable white surface that is soft to the touch.

With its 3.2" 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 aGPS, digital compass, gravity-sensor, 3.5 mm stereo headset jack, a five mega-pixel autofocus camera and expandable microSD memory. Like the HTC Magic, the HTC Hero also includes a dedicated Search button that goes beyond basic search, providing you with a more natural, contextual search experience. Last but not least the HTC Hero features again a trackball for easy navigation.








The HTC Hero is released in July. A more detailed review to follow-up soon.

Cheers ~ Arne
