"I work for a wireless developer firm and I have just received word from the US carrier (cannot disclose who yet) that the release date for the HTC Hero (Android) is October 11th 2009. The carrier is giving us specifications to develop wallpaper, ring tones and apps to sell in their market place. This is just a bit of teaser information for now. I will provide more info as allowed".
