Anyone seen any cases for the Hero yet ??? Been looking but so far no good.
Theres the offical HTC one which is a leather case which is clipped onto your belt.
not very desirable for some people though
but only option that I have seen
all others seem to be these belt types too
no pouches yet that i have seen
Not sure how good they will be though, seem pretty cheap.
White Silicone Skin Case Cover Pouch For HTC Hero PHONE on eBay (end time 22-Aug-09 22:24:53 BST)
I just ordered one, will post pics and impressions when i get it.
I ordered a similar one (in black, complete with screen protector) last week. Had an email to say it had been dispatched, but coming from Hong Kong so will take a week or more.
Will let you know if it's any good when it arrives - hardly broke the bank at 1.74 euro (
Bought this slip case from ebay. Listed as htc velvet pouch for Diamond 2 T04 - this seemed to be the closest in size to the Hero from the HTC website.
Does the job great - just a slipcase, the "velvet" is feel. It's thick enough to protect it from scratches and it cost a massive
I haven't bought one, but have you seen these?

Original HTC Hero Carry Velvet Pouch Case T07 on eBay (end time 31-Aug-09 21:10:55 BST)

NEW BLACK GEL SKIN CASE COVER POUCH FOR HTC HERO IN UK on eBay (end time 12-Sep-09 01:04:03 BST)
Fits great, seems durable, and doesn't add much thickness to the phone. Doesn't cover all the buttons like the other silicon case posted and looks slick. I got the black one for my black phone, but they also have white and pink, and they are all semi-transparent.
This and a decent screen protector make a very cheap and good looking case solution. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking.
That looks a lot better!! Will get that!!
Ebay Item: 160355523071
I got this delivered within 48 hours. It looks awesome and looks exspensive.
I have one of these flexisheild skins from mobilefun.co.uk
Its by far the best case I have had, not only for the Hero but for any mobile/ipod.

The Invisible Shield for HTC Hero is now available:

I was looking at this but there were some reports online
that when it is removed it can take the paint off the phone.
It says so on their site. I assumed it meant the teflon coating on the white one?
Dunno if its the teflon coating or just the Normal paint but either way I wouldn't wanna put anything on there that could possibly f**k the phone.
Just me, but would the teflon on the white model stop it from sticking. Teflon = non-stick
ha ha - good point...
Just to contribute here,
I bought 2 Hero Cases, Silicone and TPU case from Momax.
Momax.NET | Batteries & Mobile Phone Accessories
The silicone was alright, but for me it was to loose and bulky looking.. The momax TPU looks good and feels good. It has that diamond effect at the back which looks nice. Fits good too.
Definitely would recommend!
FWIW, my slipcase pictured above does the job. A bit loose but it does mean the phone goes in & out v easily and does what I want ie. protects it from scratches
Yeah, they look good. Could do with a UK distributor though!
I bought the Krusell Hector Large Leather Case from mobilefun.co.uk
Krusell Horizon Hector Leather Case - Large

and here's the clip
YouTube - Review: Krusell Hector
In answer to the original question, a whole heap of case options are talked about on Updated: Cases for the HTC Hero | Mobile Fun Blog and they sell most of them as well.
i just purchased this case for my Hero, simple but great looking leather slip pouch.
made by krusell so will be really good quality, just what this device deserves.
