Android powered HTC Hero caught in the wild

It looks like we have yet another unreleased Android handset to begin waiting for. This time it comes in the form of the HTC Hero and thankfully these images are a little nicer that the ones that were previously leaked, I am sure you can remember those bright pink mocked images.

Unfortunately, as with most leaked images, the details are pretty much non-existent, which combined with slightly blurry images typically just leaves us wanting more. Anyway, what we can spy from the images shows that the Hero will not have a physical keyboard and also ditches the trackball. It does however have a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.

All things considered, the addition of a 3.5mm headphone jack will be welcomed, but I cannot help but think that trackball will be greatly missed. That is — assuming these images are the real deal.
