HTC has announced the HTC Hero smartphone today and a new user interface called HTC Sense to go along with it. The Hero is a quad band GSM Android phone that has the same basic shape of the G1 that I reviewed awhile back. It still has the ‘chin’, but does not have the slide out keyboard. The slick new user interface looks very enticing to me. Check out this video demo. The Hero will be available in Europe next month, Asia this summer and in the US later this year. What do you Android fans think? I’ve actually been thinking about getting my G1 out of my phone drawer, installing cupcake and giving it another go. Wish it had HTC Sense though!
