coming from an iPhone, the HTC diamond and the N97, the Hero is the only phone that can really compete with what the iPhone is providing. I love the android OS for its expandability and smoothness.
whats the difference between magic n hero when u upgraded to htc hero rom??
Android 2.1 (Haaaallelujah)!
Europe will see an upgrade to Android 2.1 from 15th February 2010 (as commented by HTC Poland).
Android 2.1 is much faster
One interesting option is a preview of desktops, you can zoom out two Finders as pages in your browser. Effect. Effectively reduce the deskop, brillant view.
Icons have clear coat (Espresso perhaps?)
At the bottom of the menu we have: phone, menu, contacts
HTC added a nice transition when you quit the application and move around the options.
Lock screen is not rounded.
Faster-running HTC keyboard.
New widgets from HTC (News and Weather, YouTube)
Improved flashplayer. Operates smoothly.
Graphic change in the gallery and video player (Cosmetic procedures)
And the rest of the news, which introduces a new android. (Market etc.)
We have more RAM. About 130-140mb after killing the process. "
i had the htc hero a month ago and its gr8 the android os is gr8 2 but i was wondering if its true that if i upgraded the os 2 the version 2.1 i can send and receive files over bluetooth??? thanks for ur help :)
I had the same problem two weeks ago. I decided to buy myself one Hero and must say I did excellent job. The phone is just perfect. Everything goes smooth, lots of nice apps, and you may calibrate everything the way you like. The only phone on Windows platform that could be measured with Hero is HTC HD2, but it's price is just too much. Strong advice, don't thing any more go and make yourself a happy man :-)
One more but very important thing, buy white coated because the back side of phone is much better made then on the black.

krullenbol, 16 Jan 2010Does anyone know if it's possible to sync with Outlook? Thank you yes i do...
Steve all you have to do is go on a computer.... Gmail.com and it would ask if you forgot you password and username. If you forgot either it would send it out to you on the secondary email address that you put up before it got onto the main screen. Just remember that email.. If you dnt remember. you only other choice is to contact HTC and tell them you need to reboot, then thats when you would have to do a new email and you loose all your contacts and applications.
