Less than 2 weeks ago we talked about HTC’s unveiling of its Android smartphone, the HTC Hero. As usually happens these days, the Hero was being released initially in Europe. Less certain was if it was coming to the US, since recently a number of high-end smartphones haven’t (HTC Touch HD, Toshiba TG01). Sure, you could import the Hero. However, the import wouldn’t support US 3G bands.
We still don’t know when the Hero is coming to the US. But we do know the if part. It is coming. BoyGenius reports that the FCC has approved the Hero, with 3G bands supported on AT&T’s network. Hopefully it won’t be a long wait.
