HTC Hero press event full video

Well it’s taken a little while to process and upload but this is the video I recorded of the HTC Hero launch event yesterday. I apologise for the people sitting in front of me, I did my best to film around them but I’m sure you’ll enjoy the content all the same.

It’s a rather long video, over 30 minutes, so you might want to make yourself comfortable and grab a cup of tea before pressing the play button.

I only managed to play with the HTC Hero briefly yesterday but I have to say that I was pretty impressed. I like how deep the new HTC Sense UI goes in to Android and the screen is impressively responsive. The case is made from Teflon which gives it a nice smooth feel and helps to resist dirt and scratches. There’s also a special coating on the screen that’s designed to resist fingerprints so that, in the words of the Chief Innovation Officer, Horace Luke, you spend less time polishing your phone and more time using it!

One thing we also noticed while at the event is that they had a number of demo handsets plugged in to large screens so that you could see the device being demo’d on the large screen. The demo devices had a cable plugged in to the ExtUSB connector on the bottom and the UI was displayed in real time on the large screen. This leads me to believe that the HTC Hero may in fact be TV-out capable. Although not mentioned in the spec it might mean that the device is theoretically capable? Thoughts anyone?
