Take that iPhone! That’s right, Stuff Magazine has named the HTC Hero Gadget of the Year as part of its 2009 Stuff Gadget Awards event.
The revolutionary touchscreen smartphone, which is based on Google’s Android system, received the honour for its innovative take on social networking, slick multi-touch interface and superior multimedia skills.
Editor and expert judget Fraser Macdonald also commented, saying “With the HTC Hero, we’ve finally got a phone that fully exploits the potential of the Android OS to be as clever and as sexy as the iPhone.”
The Hero beat out the other major contender, the iPhone (seriously, again?). That works for us, we’re just glad somebody saw the light.
Thanks for the tip on this, Tochukwu.
