Cox HTC Hero Android PhoneCox HTC Hero Android phone

When we brought your the first pictures of a Cox HTC Hero back in May, we were expecting it to only be a test device -- it's not a young phone, after all. But Cox has just launched its wireless service in a trio of markets -- in Orange County, Calif., Omaha, Neb., and Hampton Roads, Va. -- and the Hero the HTC Desire are among the new carrier's ranks.

The Desire's going for $69.99 after two-year contract and $100 rebate, and the Hero's just $49.99 after contract and rebate. Voice plans will start at $39.99, and, and unlimited data runs $30 a month. [Cox via Bloomberg]

I believe they are partners with Sprint (as this has been in the works for a while)... hopefully that means Wimax is coming soon to those areas.

I don't see $70 as being competitive?

T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T all offer me plans at $10 - $15 less per month.

Dude its unlimited everything texting, web, gps, talking to cellphones, andbtv... so for 70$ thats good... i cant see any of the others beat that...

I live in Orange County & if I was dying for an HTC Hero, I would get Sprint's version.

With CoX being an MVNO of Sprint does this mean Sprint might offer the Desire ? I'd like to see a 3.7" Android on Sprint soon!
