Cellular South’s HTC Hero is Back in Black

Forgive my reference to AC/DC there, but Cellular South has released a black version of their HTC Hero – essentially the same Hero we saw the more popular carrier Sprint release back in 2009. There’s nothing terribly different about it: the back and sides of the device are now nearly pitch black instead of the lighter grey we’ve seen. Still, it doesn’t look bad in its new threads.


If you’re a Cellular South customer and interested in this Hero, make your way to their site now to order one for $79.99 (after rebates and instant savings). [via Android Central]

    Didn’t that phone come out like a year ago? And their new feature is that it’s black?

    Looks better than Sprint’s. Too bad it is ancient and totally obsolete.

    Almost a year…..October 2009. At least we finally got 2.1. :) Looks like no Froyo for us, though. :(
