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.

Another most notable thing, this will be the first phone on the market to have full support for Adobe Flash (not just Flash Lite ;) ). Adobe announces it here.

More videos about this AMAZING UI after the jump.

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