Sprint debuts Android phone, it is called HTC Hero


It is Sprint's first phone running on Android, and is quite a looker this HTC Hero. The HTC Hero is now official and is proudly debuting on October 11th, priced at $179.99 after rebates (a $50 instant savings and a $100 mail-in rebate with a two-year service agreement).

The HTC Hero will feature an intuitive touchscreen that employs the popular HTC Sense UI technology and "Scenes" to reflect different moments or user roles. With the Android platform bringing access to a host of more than 8000 mobile applications, the phone apparently draws heavily from how users use their phones in real-life. One of which happens to be silencing the phone by simply turning it over. You don't say! The Hero comes with a 3.2-inch touchscreen, an integrated 5.0 MP camera and camcorder, Wi-Fi capability, integrated GPS navigation, and a microSD slot. It offers e-mail, instant messaging and text messaging through POP, IMAP, and Exchange Active Sync accounts, plus live and on-demand programming with Sprint TV.

And for all those who cannot contain the excitement much longer, the pre-registration is happening here.
