I'm glad I replaced the HTC Hero with the Samsung Moment

But in a year, I'll probably want an upgraded Android phone.

Besides the physical keyboard, the Moment has a faster processor than the Hero (800 vs 528 MHz). This is even after Best Buy dropped the price of the Hero from $180 to $100. This is probably in reaction to Verizon Wireless' $100 HTC Droid Eris, which is very similar to the Hero. Bth run Android 1.5 (Cupcake). The Motorola Droid runs the newer Android 2.0 (Eclair), which goes for $200.
