HTC Hero Android Flash Phone

The HTC Hero, officially announced today, is the first Android phone with Flash. iPhone 3GS eat your heart out. The impressively flashy exterior aside, the HTC Hero is much in the mould of HTC’s other current offerings, the HTC Magic

, HTC Lancaster

and the myTouch

. Still, with the added Flash and snazzy keyboard with simulated haptic forced-feedback, the HTC Hero may just be the cult winner for anything-but-iPhone diehards.

Aside from the ability to view websites with embedded flash (remember when Apple said it couldn’t be done?), the HTC Hero has some other winning features. These include Qualcomm’s MSM7200A proc running Android at 528MHz, 512MB/288MB ROM/RAM, 3.2-inch TFT-LCD with 320 x 480 pixel rez, 900/2100MHz HSPA and Quad-band GSM, trackball, GPS, 802.11b/g WiFi, 3.5mm audio jack, G-sensor, compass, and 5 megapixel auto-focus cam with microSD expansion.

The HTC Hero is due in Europe in July on T-Mobile and Orange (we hate carrier tie-ins), Asia later in the summer, and the USA, last but not least, in qhat will probably be Q3. More images and video of the HTC Hero user interface below.
