HTC today announced a new software interface for its phones called Sense, available on "all new HTC devices moving forward", as well as the first device to use it, an Android-based smartphone called the Hero. Sense includes a "Scenes" feature that lets you configure different modes for the whole interface, such as work mode and weekend mode. It also pulls together info for various contacts onto one screen. In addition to seeing all text messages, email, and call history for a contact together, Facebook and Flickr feeds are integrated as well. Sense also includes a widget feature to put info such as Twitter, email, calendar and weather on the home screen. The Hero is a slab-style smartphone with a 3.2-inch HVGA display, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, GPS, accelerometer, compass, 3.5mm headphone jack, and memory card slot. A dedicated search button brings up a function to search the whole phone as well as feeds such as Twitter. The Hero features a fingerprint-resisitive screen, and the white version features a full Teflon coating over the whole device. The Hero will be available first this summer, then in North America by the end of 2009.
