HTC has recently launched HTC hero, a multitasking device which sports a 3.2-inch TFT-LCD touch-sensitive screen offering a resolution of around 320x480 HVGA. It supports Quad-band GSM, GPRS and EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 Mhz) networks. The HTC hero Mobile also supports HSPA and WCDMA networks within the range of 900 to 2100 Mhz, and an up-link speed of up to 2 Mbps. Considering the usage and features, the battery backup comes out to be pretty good, with a talk time of around 420 minutes forWCDMA, and up to 470 minutes for GSM. The standby time is estimated around 750 hours for WCDMA, and 440 hours for GSM.
HTC Hero for the first time introduces Sense technology, which is an advanced technology devised for touch screen based phones. HTC hero falls into the smartphone cadre, which is a term synonymous to a multi featured, multi tasking device offering PC like functionality. A smartphone can do anything, be it related to sending e-mails, forming communication, or even entertainment features like games, music, videos, and images for that matter. HTC Hero Mobile Phone, as we mentioned is a multitasking device, and a good processor here plays the key role. However, this HTC device works on the Android operating system with a Qualcomm 528MHz CPU, which is not that very impressive. Memory specifications of this mobile phone includes 288MB of RAM, a 512MB ROM, and expandable memory options up to 32 GB, which we felt justifies the cadre.
Talking about the design of HTC Hero, it embeds a couple of hardware buttons on the base of the phone, including a home, menu, back, send, end, and the much craved dedicated search key. A trackball with an enter button in the middle, further adds to the easy navigation making it a user friendly mobile phone. It supports an array of connectivity options including WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB port and a quad-band HSPA cell chip. HTC hero Mobile Phone sports a 5 mega pixel camera with auto focus, video recording, and playback features, supporting major video formats including MPEG-4, H.263 and H.264. While, the Windows Media 9 player takes care of the audio playback, and supports multiple audio formats including MP3,AAC, AMR-NB, WAV and MIDI.
Like all other smartphones, HTC hero Mobile Phone too follows the trend of one touch social networking access to major networking sites including Facebook and Twitter. For more information on HTC Hero Mobile, Mobile Phones, and expert inside out reviews, please log on to www.consumermate.com.
