HTC (the guys who built the first Android phone for T-Mobile) have released a new Android-based smartphone called Hero. It’s an amazing piece of technology and looks really cute. We’ll be trying to get our hands on this one but only if it’s not SIM-locked. Not likely, since HTC is a manufacturer, not a carrier. It runs on a customized Android OS. Looks like HTC guys put a lot of effort into the UI of the device. Not only is it multi-touch, it also looks like the next gen of UIs for smartphones. Here are the specs:

Its cool definitely with 512 rom and 288 ram! Poor OM has 32 ram and don’t remember rom but think its also 32.

The UI of hero is very crisp and it is definitely going to gain lots of attention. Can we install OM software stack on it :) By the way seriously can it be flashed and uSD be used to boot other OSes?

I’ve sent them an email regarding Sim/Firmware locks. I think it will be re-flashable. Will let you know when I get a response.
