    2 more months, ish. Until the Xperia 3 comes out basically.
    Presumably the Hero will be the most popular for a year or so though? Virtually everyone on this thread has one!

    And then there is the Acer Liquid which has the snap dragon processor in it. That must be blisteringly fast. On the subject of the hero kernel it should mean it is easier to get other mods onto the the hero such as the Motoblur software or other mods

    That doesn't deny the fact that the phone will most likely be the best Android OS based phone this side of Christmas.

    Without SenseUI it's hard to see that happening.

    I don't really mind the Sense, I'm a Google man myself.

    I'd prefer it over the Hero, assuming it delivers of course.

    I guess we'll find out in the next couple of weeks ~style. I think Android 2.0 will be the key for the device because from what i've read, it's the muts nuts! For me there was no android based phone that looked good enough for me to want to get one until I saw the DEXT. I didn't like the look or the feel of the Hero having used one. I was going to get an iPhone imported from France so I could stay on Orange without having to worry about having to get it jailbroken.

    I just really hope we get some more info about the Droid soon and when it'll arrive in the UK as i'm due to upgrade on Tuesday to the DEXT and let's face it the Droid absolutely trumps the DEXT from what we've seen so far from previews and tech specs. There's been a GSM version filed to the fcc so hopefully we'll get some info soon. May be that it's not out till after xmas though.

    Android is still awaiting several updates to the ROM amongst other features.

    Pre-Android development though is the beauty that half of this stuff is already available online if you're technically competent with hacked ROM.

    Sense UI is brilliant, period. To be a fanboy which I obviously am brings the HTC credibility.

    Official.

    I'm scared of rooting (I believe that is the term) my phone. I love it and don't wanna break it.
