    It looks like HTC is working on a second version of the Hero – one with a slider qwerty. The leaked specifications match that of the Hero, the rest are unknown at this point. We’ll keep an eye on this and update as we can.Looks like we should be able to knock this one [...]

    My girl would probably jump on this phone.
    She loves slide out keyboards, and the name would hook her like a fish, she loves her coffee drinks

    Does she love butt ugly phones, too? :)

    I like the euro hero, but it just looks plain weird with the keyboard. Hopefully, that's not what it will really look like.

    Don't think she likes "butt ugly" phones, but I think
    I will eventually be able to turn her to the slideoutkeyboardless phones...one day

    I would love for this to com out. Anyone know a timeframe? I was gonna try to get the Hero for christmas but I could wait a bit cause I love me some slide out keyboard.

    No Time frame as of yet I believe :)

    Am I the only one who thinks A HTC Hero with Keyboard will be ugly? :

    THAT particular fan-made image would be ugly, yes. Let's hope HTC doesn't feel the need to imitate that mode. I would buy a hero with a qwerty in a heartbeat. All my wildest dreams would have come true. Though I don't know if I should get my hero at Christmas time or wait for this one...

    No, you're not the only one. That is a face only a mutha could love. Please tell HTC designers: We don't do lips on our phones...It simply "isn't done!" LOL - They may be calling it Espresso but it's still Boo-Boo brown to me. Not chic.

    I just read over at the Sprint official forums for the Hero that the Hero successor will be revealed February of 2010. If this is true, then I'm not sure what I should do. I want the Hero ASAP, and since the virtual keyboard is multi touch, it should be nice enough for me to continue my power texting ways on. I shouldn't really NEED that new physical keyboard...Especially if it's garbage like the Droids. Hm. Decisions, decisions...
