We had heard that the much-vaunted HTC Hero would be coming along Sprint-side on October 11th., a rumour that is gaining some traction as the EVDO version has slid through FCC filings. Our very own Ben Robinson has had a solid run at the Android device released in the UK, and walked away amply impressed. With a 3.2″ HVGA touchscreen with smudge-resisting teflon coating, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, and HTC’s custom-tailored Sense user interface, it’s hard not to be. Who’s ready to pounce on this phone if it’s released this fall? Definitely good timing for the holiday season, if the rumours pan out.
