TFTS is reporting that Cell South is selling the new “sexier” black HTC Hero for $80 and you can even buy one get one. Cell South is a very popular regional carrier, in of course, the south.
The specs for the HTC Hero, originally introduced on Sprint in October 2009, haven’t changed except for the new casing.

The HTC Hero ships with 1.5, however Cellular South has been agressively upgrading some handsets to 2.1 in addition they are expecting the HTC Desire and A Samsung Galaxy Handset.
