HTC Hero pre sales dated
A leaked Best Buy inventory screen capture reveals the HTC Hero for Sprint will be offered as a pre-order on September 13th, BGR reported on Thursday. While this is still not the release date for the Android-powered smartphone, it does give an indication of when users can expect to see the handset in store, as pre-orders usually start a few weeks ahead of an official release date.
The Hero is touted to be the first Android handset to support Flash. It is smaller than the current Magic and sports HTC's Sense interface. It will be a web browsing and music-oriented device. The Hero will also get a dedicated search button that will allow users to browse for whatever they are searching for in their contacts, e-mails, music and Twitter posts.
