The HTC Hero S was announced on September 28th for US Cellular, but at that time they only gave us a date of “available next month”. Well, we’re in that next month and one of our readers has noticed that it’s now available for purchase for $200 after a new two-year agreement. This is only after a $100 mail-in rebate that’s returned to you in the form of a Mastercard so you will be paying $300 for it up front.
For that money we wouldn’t blame you for trying out a different phone. They do carry the Motorola Electron, a variant of Motorola high-end phones. It has 1GB of RAM, a 1GHz dual-core processor and a 4.3 inch qHD display. I’m not here to influence your purchase decision, though – go take a look at the Hero S and decide for yourself.
