HTC Hero at June 24 Event

HTC's teaser for a June 24th event is to introduce its upcoming Hero Android phone and with a twist, Taiwan's Economic Daily News said today. The device shown in videos to date is just one variant and will be supported by a version known as the Memphis with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Its American counterpart will be the Lancaster due for AT&T, the leak claims.

The paper supports rumors by saying the Lancaster would be a six-month exclusive for AT&T. No specifics are available for release dates and pricing.

One if not both of the Hero models will use HTC's in-house Android version of TouchFLO. Elsewhere nicknamed "Rosie," it has custom widgets for contacts and other elements accessible from the top level rather than having to launch into dedicated apps.
