Anonymous, 30 Jul 2009Does anybody out there actually answer any questions or do you just like posting for the sake ... moreHi Anon,
i recieved the device yesterday, after opting for the tmobile contract, the phone is well built, slick animations and very impressive, the o.s. has alot of potential and the userbility is second to none, the camera is awful in the evening but then again that slight negative is definately outweighed by all the positives the phone has to offer :) i hope that helps you

Anonymous, 30 Jul 2009Does any one knows if HTC Hero has the shortcomings of HTC Magic such as limited bluetooth profiles?It has the desired features in the device.
It's the amazing and rocking device.
Asmaa, 29 Jul 2009Guys I have something very important to tell you about the HTC Hero: It does not support the b... moreHi there. The current versions of Iphone version 3 are still like that!. If you are a Mac owner with bluetooth, you can access the phone anyway Theres always MMS and email, so I don't think its a showstopper
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2009Any word on how 'laggy' the interface is? What's it like if you don't use lots of widgets?Hi there. I have used this in the UK and have seen no lag. I have heard that the hero uses a swap file on the SD card and if you have a fast card (class 6 for example) then this helps as well. However if you have 7 screens with widgets all updating then I would assume some lag may happen. This is why comparison to the Iphone as a bench mark (which I currently have) is wrong. The Iphone is one app at a time thats why it is fast. The beauty about the Hero is you can have Facebook running on 1 screen, Twitter on another and still compose SMS. Something Iphone users have been expecting but not had for a while.
Its like any other PC though, too many things open and performance will be a factor. I think though looks, customisation and overall this beats my Iphone.
