I was originally going to get an HTC Hero when it came out on Verizon, but now I'm pretty sure I'm going to get this. It has the functionality I need, but holy cow...it is really, really ugly, especially when compared to the Hero UI. I haven't had an android phone before. Will it be theme-able? I hate the way it looks, physically and the UI. The Hero, in contrast, has an amazing UI. But it doesn't have Android 2.0 or the faster processor, which is huge for me.
