HTC Hero goes CDMA

The FCC has approved a new version of the HTC Hero, testing documents reveal. Dubbed the HERO200, the model is compatible with CDMA networks, in contrast with the GSM model currently in production. It also supports EVDO broadband, and may validate rumors that the phone will soon be available through Sprint.

The Hero is a smartphone based on Google's Android platform, with a new overlay interface known as Sense. It also features support for Flash 10 and universal search, as well as conventional headphones through a 3.5mm output jack. A compass, accelerometer and a microSDHC slot are present, as are Wi-Fi and GPS receivers. No North American release dates have been announced, but the Hero may be the second Sprint Android phone after Samsung's InstinctQ.
