HTC Hero in Black

Always had a special place in our hearts for the HTC Hero, even if it is a little long in the tooth. But dress it up in black, and we'd be more than happy to put this guy in our bag as a backup device. It's available now from Cellular South for $79.99 after contract and rebate. [Cellular South] Thanks, @asmith001!

With the Eris end of lifed you figure they would have put the hero down like old yeller but nope its still kicking.

Even with the small screen size and lack of power (as compared to my EVO), I still love my son's's a cute, solid little phone.

ilaifire says:

Small screen size? I would beg to differ, the Evo has an oversized screen .

its got a perfect sized screen! I love how just the screen size is close to the size of my whole sprint Hero. I can't wait to get an evo myself. Its the one and only thing I want for christmas.

ilaifire says:

I chose the Hero over the EVO simply because of size. I'm not an 8 foot tall giant, I can't comfortably use a huge device that size.

Bujin#IM says:

Well, that's sort of a "po-tay-to" / "po-tah-to" kind of thing. To be fair, I'd say that the Hero's screen is small, and the EVO is oversized: 3.7" - 4" is probably the sweet spot for screen size in 2010. :)

My aging eyes prefer oversized.

Beats any feature phone on the market. I'd take it.

Long in the tooth? Seven months old? Eight?

StuRoid says:

Surely it's more like a year now? I know these came out in the UK like a year ago and you guys in the states would have had the Hero long before us.

ilaifire says:

I liked it in grey more. Why are all these phones being released in black? Why not more white or grey phones?

chefkeyser says:

I like rockin' my grey one with the black OtterBox. Looks like something Batman would carry.
