The HTC Hero takes Android to the next level

After our in-depth hands on with the new HTC Hero / T-Mobile G1 Touch, we bring you a selection of pics of HTC's latest baby from the recent London event.

Featuring a full range of customisable home screens and widgets to give you control over the handset, we give you the full pictorial run down if you don't fancy having a look at our full HTC Hero review.

As you can see, it's something of a corker, though we do feel the processing prowess could have been a little better, and we're certainly not sure about that lip...
