    Hi all, I am thinking of getting a hero now, however a few things I've read have put me off.

    a) Some of the random problems, wi-fi connectivity etc.
    b) the fact that the new lineup isn't actually that long away

    Basically, do you think it's a good idea to wait? I must admit I can't

    If your not desperate wait for the line up.
    Hopefully by the HTC will have sorted out the bugs.

    Well it's not like I don't want it at all :p, + does anyone know if the 2010 lineup is more for Jun/Jul or March time? If it's the earlier I may buy a hero now and simply sell it later.

    With regards to lag etc, you have to bare in mind when reading these threads its all subjective, the original ROM's and Firmware were not the best from what I have read, but HTC have done work on that, and my 1 month old hero is amazing, no WiFi issues, no Lag, no keyboard issues. yeah camera sucks, and flash player is still an issue, aside from that Im very happy:D

    Yeah this is kinda what I need to know... however I am thinking of holding off on the hero until march so it drops further in price (or just buying one of the new line of phones). + it means I can get new shoes for Christmas :p

    I don't find my Hero laggy at all - and only 1 homescreen is not running a widget (the other 6 are) :)

    It depends - looking at the new lineup they are using touchpads rather than rollerball which I'm not keen on - and the NEW Hero is pretty much identical internally.

    No problems what so ever with WiFi connectivity on mine - although have read its to do with the router side (same probs Nintendo DS light can have with N band) although it does seem to only effect certain makes of router.

    Guess its your choice really - cool award winning phone now or wait to see if there's any improvement in the next lineup.

    Thanks. I've been hearing a lot about new 1ghz CPUs etc which have confused me a little bit, and I must confess that I'd much rather have a physical keyboard (I believe a fair few of the new lineup have these?) so I'm also looking at the milestone, which atm is too expensive for me.
