I'm with a bit of proudness that I say that in July the HTC Hero, a new Android-based smart-phone, is going to be launched.
For UK, Orange will be the operator to sell it.
As far as I know, details are not being disclosed yet.
HTC has developed this new UI/UX (User Interface/User eXperience) on the top of Android, called "HTC Sense". Some says, on the top of Android (2.0 codename "Donut"). I personally don't know if it's true: if it is soon we will have it in the Android branch. But something tells me that this is going to be ONLY available on Android HTC phones. It's too much of a "added value" for HTC to give it out to everyone else.
More videos about this AMAZING UI after the jump. <!--more-->

I'm really excited about this device. Not having switched yet to iPhone 3GS now makes even more sense! ;)
