Cell South lowers Hero price and adds plan

Cellular South began taking pre-orders for the HTC Hero along with a pair of moves to draw attention to its launch. The phone itself will cost just over half of Sprint's price at $100 versus the larger carrier's $180. Both Android device versions have the same features, including HTC's Sense UI, a 5-megapixel camera, 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi.

On top of the phone itself, the carrier has also begun offering a new Smartphone Unlimited Plan. The $80 monthly service provides unlimited US voice, messaging and data where previous-best Sprint charges $100 for the same access.

Cellular South's pre-order campaign doesn't address the company's original statements that it would ship the Hero today and doesn't give an update as to when the smartphone will arrive. Sprint's version may now ship first when it appears on October 11th.
