Sprint Nextel is launching HTC Hero in the U.S at a lower price

On September 3, 2009, Sprint Nextel announced to launch HTC Hero, the third Android based mobile phone in the U.S. However, the Sprint version of HTC Hero has a slightly different design than the European HTC Hero. The biggest advantage of this mobile is its price. Sprint is going to launch HTC Hero on October 11, 2009 for $180. The phone will become available with a two year contract. PC World reports:

The Hero's price point is a wise decision on Sprint's part and makes them a direct threat to T-Mobile's Android stronghold. While the myTouch 3G and the G1 are solid phones, they just can't compete with the Hero's 3.2-inch multitouch screen, 5-megapixel camera, and speedy 528-MHz Qualcomm processor. And its eligibility for Sprint's ultra-affordable $100 Everything plan makes the Hero all the more desirable over the myTouch 3G.

PC reports:

The slab-style Hero is better than the other two Android phones on the market, the T-Mobile G1 and the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G, in various ways. The Hero has a real 3.5-mm headphone jack, so it's a viable music player. It also has a 5-megapixel camera, versus the 3.2-Mpixel versions found on the other two phones. Finally, the Hero's other advantage is a fingerprint-resistant coating on its screen similar to the one found on the iPhone 3GS.

After HTC, Motorola is going to launch another Android phone in the U.S. They are going to announced the phone next week. Rumor spread out that the phone will have a CDMA and GSM version will be released.
