HTC and Sprint come together to announce their Android based baby swaddled in plastic.

Android junkies have no doubt been following the HTC Hero — one of the most anticipated Android devices of 2009. While we, the electronically informed knew of it’s coming long ago, HTC and Sprint have officially come forward to give us all some set in stone confirmation. Starting October 11th for a rather affordable $179.99 after your typical hodge podge of various discounts, the HTC can be your one true love. As you can see from the image to the left, the Sprint version of the Hero got a rather substantial face lift which rounded and reduced the boxy chin of the original. I like it. I like it a lot. It’s very Magic-esque which by the way isn’t a bad looking phone either. The new silverish hue is also an eye please.

Now all you up and coming Sprint Hero owners need to do is pick up that leaked ROM that was floating around that dramatically improved the Sense UI’s performance. Of course, Sprint could have already gone ahead and done the dirty work for us. Anyone care to enlighten us? You know, while I haven’t really ever been a fan of Sprint, their lineup is starting to pick up. First the Pre (come on…it’s not that bad…and actually pretty cool) and now the HTC Hero seems to signal an up tick in Sprints future no?

    Looks like a sexy phone but unless I moved to a place the Sprint alone had coverage, I will not be switching over at all. Even though the phone is looking extremely promising
