HTC Corporation debuted HTC Sense, an intuitive and seamless experience that will be introduced across a portfolio of phones beginning with the new HTC Hero.
"HTC Hero introduces a more natural way for reaching out to the people and accessing your important information, not by following the status quo of todays phones, but by following how you communicate and live your life," said Peter Chou, chief executive officer, HTC Corporation.
HTC Hero has bevelled edges and an angled bottom and is contoured to fit in the hand and against the face while on a call.
It comes with an anti-fingerprint screen coating for improved smudge resistance and a longer lasting, clearer display.
The white HTC Hero includes Teflon coating.
With its 3.2-inch HVGA display, the HTC Hero is optimised for Web, multimedia and other content and has a small size and weight.
It also comes with hardware features including a GPS, digital compass, gravity-sensor, 3.5mm stereo headset jack, a 5 mega-pixel autofocus camera and expandable MicroSD memory.
HTC Hero also includes a dedicated Search button that goes beyond basic search that enables users to search through Twitter, locate people in contact list, find emails in inbox or search in any other area in Hero.
HTC Sense promises to shape the mobile experience around the individual. Debuting on the HTC Hero and available on all new HTC devices moving forward.
The HTC Hero will be available to people across Europe in July and in Asia later in the summer. A distinct North American version will be available later in 2009.
