Telus to launch their HSPA+ network on November 5, and with it comes the HTC Hero

While Rogers seems content with the lower priced and older Android handsets, Telus on the other hand will soon begin offering the HTC Hero. And on top of that, they will be the exclusive carrier for the HTC Hero.

This means the HTC Hero will be available as of November 5, which also coincides nicely with Telus launching their HSPA+ network. Looks good for Android fans that live in Canada, not only will they be getting an upgrade in network, but a shiny new Android phone to take advantage of it.

Sadly though, other than a few minor details (which are listed below) the rest remains a mystery. And by “the rest” I am really referring to the price. Not to mention, the little that Telus did list on the website is probably already common knowledge for most Androinica readers.
