HTC Hero Shown in Video

HTC's Hero Android phone has been pictured in a video (shown below) that also elaborates partly on its custom interface. Matching earlier leaks, it depends almost exclusively on its touchscreen rather than the trackball of the Dream and Magic and is now believed to come in several colors rather than the basic black or white of most earlier Android phones. Most of its other details remain unknown.

The Hero will, however, receive an HTC-designed interface codenamed "Rosie." Drawing on elements of TouchFLO adapted to the Android environment, the UI will have pre-supplied widgets for contacts, weather and other information on multiple home screens and easier access to some settings, such as wireless connections. Social networking is also poised to play a greater role but hasn't been shown in much detail.

Most anticipate the Hero shipping late this year; T-Mobile USA may be one of the first to adopt it and may call it the G3. [via Android Community]
