    Did your HTC Hero turn red? This poor guy's did

    What the heck? A reader sends in this image of his HTC Hero. It apparently changed color as it began to heat up. Insanity. As I changed from a 1st gen iPhone to an HTC Hero I was very satisfied with it. Until it started getting very hot and turned into a redish color as well. While HTC told me to send it in, which I did on March 7, and they will replace the chasis I still dont have it back. As I… Read More

    Sprint pushes OTA bug-fixin' update to HTC Hero

    Sprint has pushed out an over-the-air firmware update for its popular HTC Hero 'droid handset.

    The HTC Hero is now available from Sprint, just an FYI

    Sprint isn't doing itself any favors recently by breaking retail's first rule: Customers are dumb, so don't give them choices. But now at Sprint, consumers must decide between the Palm Pre, the BlackBerry Tour, and $179 (after $100 MIR & 2-year agreement) the Android-powered HTC Hero. I mean, they're making it awful hard on customers these days by offering more than one must-have phone. Read More

    CDMA HTC Hero spied without signature chin – Hot or Not?

    The HTC Hero is undoubtedly the best looking Android device. Don’t even try to argue with that fact. But the CDMA-variant of the Hero might be radically different. So much, that I’m not sure if I dig it. Right now the Internet is aflutter with ohs and ahs about the redesigned phone, but I think it looks like a cheap, Chinese redesign. Who knows, maybe it will grow on me. There… Read More

  • Review: HTC Hero

    Review: HTC Hero

    There is a fairly standard montage in the canon of bad 80s movies. It involves the protagonist(s) working hard to build/do/invent something to beat the stuck up and dismissive antagonists. See, for example, Summer Rental, a John Candy vehicle in which Candy and crew convert a seafood restaurant that was originally a boat back into a boat in order to win a big, rich boat race against snobs.
