Right now at BGR headquarters, one of the phones on our “want list” is definitely the HTC Hero — especially after checking out all that delicious HTC Sense UI goodness. After getting some of that typical Europeans-get-it-first jealousy out of the way, we were happy to hear the device is headed stateside later this year but the question remained… Which carriers would be scoring this bad boy? The government body partly responsible for making or breaking our gadget dreams, the FCC, has given the HTC Hero its stamp of approval for North America and the related filings indeed tout WCDMA 850/1900. Woo! Is the Hero AT&T-bound? Is it headed to Rogers? Maybe both? Hopefully we’ll find out soon but at least AT&T and Rogers subscribers now know to hold off on the imports since some 3G love is definitely headed our way.
