Some will say that i would just have to look into samsung phones specially Omnia HD, but i like the UI of the HTC hero, yup iphone, pre', samsung, LG, nokia, sony phone killer...
What i dont like about the HTC Hero is its candy bar design, it would be more gorgeous if it has no curve like thing on the bottom of the phone, just a plain bar with no curves. cut off the curve and squeeze the other keys and the track ball on the center of the home and menu key and it would be awesome.
i think HTC HERO UI is very far, miles far, galaxy far more better than those in the market today...

That can make a huge difference in speed of loading a lot of graphics intensive menus, apps, gallery and games.
wow! this think jumps right out of the box box at trying a different approach to everything! love the design, the looks, the specs... everything!
android IS the most intuitive and fun ui till date i guess! so it is not just an iphone killer, but will kill all! besides, iphone ui is just as boring as that of any random nokia! there is nothing new to it even though they keep upgrading it.
all the best htc! just price it right and you have a winner! an actual hero!

I think you're right, everywhere I post up the answer is always the same, the Pro 2, all the reviews and youtube videos I've seen it looks mightily impressive and feature rich, especially for business.
Plus WM 6.5 is just around the corner and looks excellent.

But, as for me, when I chose a handset, it would be the OS that would make my decision, you know .. there are lots of softwares out there now, Symbian, Mac (iPhone), Android, WinMo, WebOS (Palm)..etc so the one I like the most will be my next handset. The confusing thing is just even within these OSes there are also multiple choices. But for now, I would recommend:
Symbian: Nokia N97 or Samsung I8910 OmniaHD
WinMo: Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 or HTC Touch Diamond2 or HTC Touch Pro2
Android: HTC Hero (When it comes out) or Samsung I7500 Galaxy
These are my choices from within the OS I'd chose. Hope it helps a little!
I am so confused....So many choices in handsets now....I was patient enough to wait..I have always been a BB fan and it was going to be my next handset until I saw the beauties coming out of HTC lineups, then Samsung had a nice streak but this device is stellar. I don't care what people say about WinMo..But I dont minds them..As a matter of fact I think WinMo good years are still to come.
My only question is about Android. I have read some good things but I am not sure I will like it. Have seem the videos on youtube but I am still not sure..Anyone out there pretty familiar with Android...Please help...Help me make a choice before another handset makes me change my mind...
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2009Old Spec, no div-x boring! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz http://www.htc.com/www/product/... moreOld specs?? What is old about it? The most intuitive UI up till now? or the Multi-Touch Capacitive screen? Or the handwriting recognition on capacitive screens (which Android devices only support it for capacitive screens up till now)? Or the 288Mb RAM? Or the 5MP camera (Which is not old at all, mobiles coming out at 8MP or 12MP doesn't mean 5MP is old, or is less capable)? What does OLD mean for you?
Anonymous, 24 Jun 200965k screen? lame! should have had AMOLED screen no flash on the camera any specs on video ... moreIf you're viewing a video on a 65K screen, and the same one on a 16M screen, would you notice the difference? I think not, so it's not the deal breaker!
Dan, 24 Jun 2009Question: HTC Hero vs Touch Pro 2 vs Diamond 2 for business use = ? What do you think? D... moreSeriously, the Pro2 .. it's not just because you said business, but it's actually much more styled for business usage, and it has a sort of fun, its own way! Don't forget it's WM .. so tweaking it like this and adding the TouchFLO-3D UI to it, would give it fun beside the business usability.
Raymond, 24 Jun 2009hey friends dont forget HTC Touch HD is killed iphone last year.Yeah, and wm killed touch HD :D .
Now this os looks much more better and user-friendly :)
Yeah it looks perfect! I alwas wondered what is the deference of a 65k colour display and a 16m one?!
Old Spec, no div-x boring!
65k screen? lame!
should have had AMOLED screen
no flash on the camera
any specs on video camera? 30fps? vga or D1?
nice multi touch capacitive, looks pretty good too, will definitely consider getting this phone, hope it doesnt fail like the n97
HTC Hero vs Touch Pro 2 vs Diamond 2 for business use = ?
What do you think? Dont say TP2 just because I said business, seriously, which phone? its got to be cool too!
