3.0 out of 5 stars Great Smartphone, but no VOIP, 6 Nov 2009
This review is from: HTC Hero Sim Free Android Smartphone (discontinued by manufacturer) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
HTC Hero Android is a great choice for next gen Smartphone, if a VOIP (Skype?) is not in your must-have feature list. Otherwise the application catalog is more than sufficient and 95% free!

After updating the latest firmware version, the sluggish touch screen speeds up nicely. Hardware isn't sufficient for heavy multitasking however, latest Nokia would be better choice for heavy usage.

I am happy with my purchase though, I wasn't excepting a mobile-world-Ferrari but a slick smartphone with a wide collection of free apps and games.

You can now use the free Fring app to make Skype calls on Android. I'm using it on my phone and it works quite well. This from the Fring website:

"...Android device users can now get onto fring (we know you're been missing us since some of you recently switched to Android devices :-) ) with (the first) free VoIP calls over Skype, MSN and GoogleTalk and via hundreds of SIP providers. As always you can see real-time presence and live chat with your ICQ, Yahoo! And AIM buddies too. You can also use Twitter there, as part of your integrated contact list.

fring on android works over 3G, GPRS or Wi-Fi internet connection....."

Nimbuzz is much more versatile.

"Hardware isn't sufficient for heavy multitasking however"
That's what I was afraid of.
I wish screens were still black and white, fast applications, long battery life and a proper keyboard off course.
