CDMA Variant of HTC Hero Approved by FCC
Today documents seen on the FCC web site confirm that HTC is making a CDMA version of the Hero Android phone that it announced earlier this year. The FCC notes that this version of the Hero has EVDO and Bluetooth. The GSM version of the Hero uses HTC's custom Sense UI and has a 3.2-inch HVGA display, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, GPS, accelerometer, compass, 3.5mm headphone jack, and memory card slot. The FCC does not confirm these specs for the CDMA version of the Hero, however. This version of the Hero is compatible with the networks operated by Sprint and Verizon, though neither has announced this phone.
