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.

Attractive design

The HTC Touch2's design strikes a nice balance between its predecessor and the fancier HTC Touch Diamond2.

Pocket-friendly

The Touch2 measures 4.1 inches tall by 2.1 inches wide by 0.5 inch wide and weighs 4 ounces. It fits nicely in the palm of your hand and easily slips into a pants pocket.

Navigation controls

Below the display, there are five quick-launch buttons and a touch-sensitive zoom bar that lets you easily zoom in and out of photos, Web pages, and documents.
