Android Invasion: Hot Devices Driving Google's OS Blockbuster


HTC Hero

Heroic indeed. Hero was the first Android smartphone to be carried by Sprint and it sports beveled edges, an antifingerprint screen coating, a 3.2-inch HVGA touch-screen display with pinch-to-zoom, embedded GPS, a digital compass, a gravity sensor and a 5-megapixel camera. It was also the first U.S. smartphone to use HTC Sense, which allows users to customize their home screens using different panels and widgets and is now seen on several HTC phones.

Around the same time came the release of the HTC Droid Eris, a Verizon version of the Hero that's slightly smaller than the Hero but has almost all of the same features.
