HTC launches HTC Hero

Posted: January 15, 2010 in Tech

HTC recently launced their latest offering with HTC Hero.

The HTC Hero is built to last, beginning with an anti-fingerprint screen coating for improved smudge-resistance and a longer-lasting, clearer display. The white HTC Hero includes an industry-first, Teflon coating, resulting in an improved, durable white surface that is soft to the touch.

With its 3.2-inch HVGA display, the HTC Hero is optimized for Web, multimedia and other content, while maintaining a small size and weight that fits comfortably in your hand. It also boasts a broad variety of hardware features including AGPS, digital compass, gravity-sensor, 3.5mm stereo headset jack, a five mega-pixel autofocus camera and expandable MicroSD memory. HTC Hero also includes a dedicated Search button that goes beyond basic search, providing you with a more natural, contextual search experience that enables you to search through Twitter, locate people in your contact list, find emails in your inbox or search in any other area in Hero.

The HTC Hero is the first device to feature HTC Sense, a design framework focused on putting people at the center of the communications experience. Introduced earlier this year, HTC Sense was designed around the three fundamental principles of “Make it Mine,” “Stay Close,” and “Discover the Unexpected.” These principles represent HTC’s philosophy of focusing on how people live and how they stay connected with the people and information that matters most to them.

With seven customizable home screen panels and access to thousands of applications, widgets and games from the Android Market, people can easily create an experience unique to them. The HTC Hero offers a wide range of Google™ mobile services including Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, and YouTube. If seven panels aren’t enough to capture every aspect of a person’s life, the HTC Hero makes it possible to customize even more home screens. This feature, called “scenes”, enables the creation of customizable profiles that can be tailored to how life changes at different times of the day, or different days of the week.

Additionally, staying connected is made easier by how the HTC Hero puts people, not technology, at the center of the communication experience. It accomplishes this by gathering all interactions including email, SMS, voicemail, and social networking updates into individual contact cards, making a full communications history available with only one touch.
