HTC’s website leaks the HTC Hero before the announcement
We woke up a little early this morning to see if we could bring you some early coverage of HTC’s press event in London. No word from across the pond quite yet, but HTC web designers accidentally leaked the product page for the HTC Hero before the announcement. The leaked images of the Rosie Interface has been renamed to HTC Sense, which allows users to use an array of customized widgets that puts the information you want right at your finger tips and on your Android Home screen. HTC’s Sense also features different profiles which allow you to easily switch between different preset widgets depending what you want to see (work/media/home). HTC has expanded Android’s contact integration from Google’s simple Gmail contacts to allowing you to view your contacts live streams from Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
The HTC Hero will be powered by a 528MHzQualcomm MSM7200A, has a 3.2-inch TFT-LCD with 320 x 480 screen, 512MB/288MB ROM/RAM, 900/2100MHz HSPA and Quad-band GSM, trackball, GPS, 802.11b/g WiFi, 3.5mm audio jack, G-sensor, compass, and 5 megapixel auto-focus cam with microSD expansion.
Don’t worry, you read that right. The HTC Hero will have a 3.5mm headphone jack! Now we just have to wait for the official announcement. Have we mentioned yet that HTC Sense looks very much like TouchFLO 3D on all their Windows Mobile phones?
