In this video, we unbox the HTC Hero, which is presented beautifully in a small-sized white box. Over the course of the next few videos, we’ll take a fresh look at the Android platform from the perspective of a Windows Mobile user. We’ll also take a deep look at the Sense UI, an interface concept that HTC plans to bring to future Windows Mobile devices (though perhaps not in the same form that we see on the Hero).
The Hero sports quite similar specifications to that of the newer Windows Mobile-based HTC devices like the Touch Pro2. It has a Qualcomm 528MHz CPU with 288MB of RAM. It has WiFi (b & g), has the UMTS 900 and 2100 bands (meaning no 3G in the US), aGPS, a 3.5mm jack for audio, a 5.0MP autofocus camera, microSD memory expansion, and a 1350mAh battery. It also has an interesting Teflon coating to allow for a better in-hand feel. For full specs, check out PDAdb.net.
