While I was away and so busy in the early parts of the month I picked up a new Cell Phone and I love it. I got the new Sprint HTC Hero.

I love android and all that it can do. Apps are being developed and most that I have downloaded have been great. Here is a link to the app store viewable online and not just on your andriod device.

A couple downsides to this phone, at least to me:

Battery Life – When used heavily for GPS, WIFI, and Bluetooth the phone does not last long enough.

Data Cable – This cable does not have a standard USB Mini plug but some HTC plug. I hate when companies just do not use standard cables.

No Upgrade to 1.6 yet – Sprint and HTC really need to pick this up and work out the bugs that they have. 1.6 introduces some nice features one of which is IPSec VPN without rooting the phone. I need this!!

Other than that I love this phone and think that it is very snappy, multitasks well, and I love the HTC and Sprint customizations.( Even though that is exactly why the 1.6 upgrade is not available for this device)

Overall I would recommend this device to anyone. Sprint has great plans for this phone and I do not think you can beat the priceing of the data plans.

Check it out and let me know what you thing.

    As years pass by, new discoveries and inventions of cell phones are being released. The cell phone is a fantastic invention. A new service called Paymo, has already struck deals with the major cell phone companies, including T Mobile and AT&T, and it works kind of PayPal, though it hasn't taken off in America yet. It works by either scanning the cell phone at participating stores, or by text messaging, and customers use either pre-paid accounts, or add the charges to their cell phone bill. Several similar cell phone payment companies are at work, but this might be healthy competition for credit cards, and certainly can be a convenient phone application.
