Well... after the lame iPhone 3GS (it's good... but not great!), HTC managed to surprise me with HERO. Nice design, nice OS. I would buy that, but I wouldn't pay more than 400 dollars.

Not even on the market and already an Iphone 3Gs killer.

Android is a step into the future, Iphone Mac OS3.0 is a sin against technological advancement.

Again, this looks like T-mobile in the US. Someone posted 850/1900??? The HTC website says HSPA/WCDMA: - 900/2100 MHz. Aren't that T-mobile frequencies?
