HTC Hero2

The HTC Hero2 is the successor to the HTC Touch and HTC Touch 3G. The Touch2 will be available in European and Asian markets in Q4, but HTC won't be importing an unlocked version of the smartphone to the States. It's possible to get an unlocked model from a third-party vendor, but its pricing has not yet been released.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue
