What about the Hero?

Didn't I read somewhere Sprint was getting the HTC Hero. The best Android that will it the US!
supposedly October 11th
...
Best Android phone in the
U.S.? The Hero is the same as the Tmo MyTouch.
...
The Hero is crap, go read some reviews of it. The sense ui makes it really laggy. The UI is awesome but yet again HTC is still using old hardware. The Rachael is going to be the money. And when T-mo gets the galaxy that will be the best Android ph...

350 after 100 dollar rebate?

Are they crazy?


Thats 450 plus Im sure they will have their required plans and packages. Id pay 450 if I didnt have to do all the other stuff.

This is why Apple dominates....and yes I know about apple making money off the apps and other stuff
what you want them to give the phone away for free? just get it off ebay, thats a hot device, cant wait to get rid of my tour touchpro 2 hear i come baby!!
...
Actually WinMo phones don't require specific plans on Sprint. But uhh why get a high end phone if you don't plan on using the features? $70/month with unlimited data and messaging?? A ton better than anything AT&T has
...
Even if it's only as good as the TP, it's far better than most anything else out there.
btw, anyone else notice it doesn't when it'll be available in store. It says telesales and sprint.com...but no mention of direct sales.

I have a theory....

In my opinion, this is the best smartphone yet in wireless. However, I am thinking that the push for Sprint and TMO(which carries the variant of the TP2), is probably to get subscribers into their flagship devices. The Pre for Sprint and the Mytouch for TMO. These are direct competitors for the iphone. I Stopped in at TMO to check out the TP2. I told the Rep that I really liked it and he went completely out of his way to try to steer me away from the TP2 and get me into trying the Mytouch. I feel this maybe the reason for the jacked price. While it is not a huge jack, it may be enough to deter a potential TP2 customer away and into a more iphone like device. As a businessman, I like HTC and this device is a total winner and workhorse. The ke...

I wonder why a rep would push one phone over another... Anyone work for T-Mobile? Do they offer a spiff for selling particular handsets?
...
i would'nt put too much into that theory slammer, the rep that tried to push you to the my touch probably just knew more about the my touch than the tp2. i love learning about new phones and what they can do and i will say that the features (besides t...

clarification?

will sprints version of the phone really have quad-band GSM/EDGE radios like it was mention dint he article summary? or was that just a type? it seams to me like it would have cdma evdo instead of the gsm.
it has GSM as an option, but will run CDMA EVDO Rev-A like the article says. Same thing as the Tour, Ace, 8830. before you travel internationally you have to call the International Dpt to activate international roaming with the included International ...
