Ugh, been a nightmare morning. YouTube started having problems with AVI video uploads, which is what I typically use, and was truncating our videos at 34 seconds. Once I realized that MP4 uploads work still for some reason, I started re-rendering and re-uploading all of the failed uploads from earlier this morning, including the two HTC Hero videos that follow.
The first video was shot by Russ Jefferies and is the better of the two. At the London launch event he does an introduction to the phone and then has an HTC rep go through some of the features. In the second video, found after the jump, I stumble through a demo of a Hero with no SIM or data in a horribly loud room at an event in NYC last night.
I score it UK: 1 – USA: 0. No matter what country, though, it’s a great looking device.
