Teflon, trackball and Flash support


HTC has
officially unveiled the Hero, an Android based phone with Flash support and a fresh new widget-based user interface.

The Hero is powered by Qualcomm's MSM7200A CPU clocked at 528MHz, it packs 512MB of RAM and 288MB of ROM, supports 900/2100MHz HSPA and quad-band GSM, 802.11b/g WiFi and GPS. The feature list goes on, there's a accelerometer, compass, 5 megapixel autofocus camera, a 3.2-inch 320x480 screen and even a tracball, which is not something you usually see on phones, or anything else for that matter.

The new widget based HTC Sense UI promises to provide easy access to information on the home screen, and there's a few new profile features, as well as some social networking integration. What's more, HTS says Hero is the first Android device with proper Flash support.

The design is pretty straight forward, and it will be available in black and white. Oddly, the white version boasts a Teflon coaring to keep it free from dirt and oily smudges. Perfect for people with greasy skin or fast food addicts with bad personal hygiene.

The new phone is expected to go on sale in Europe sometime in July, and will be offered by T-Mobile and Orange. Asia and America will have to wait a few months more.
