I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

      1. There is a new HTC Hero? :O

        1. Yep. Formerly known as the Kingdom. It’s basically an Evo 3D but minus the 3D =)

          1. Yeah, this is the one they are branding the HTC Hero 4G – correct?

          2. And minus the Dual Core Processor and the 1 GB of RAM

  2. Maybe it’s a Hero S .. or Heroes ;)

  3. Am wondering if its going to be dual core or not for the hero 4g

  4. I am sick of all the patent news….patents should be a corporate issue…here I want to read about leaked images, rumours, cool apps, future android versions…..ahhh!!!

  5. If Google really did turn down a joint bid…that would be an interesting twist to all this.
