Check out this page over at Negri Electronics where they’re offering up unlocked Heroes for $579.50. Why are these any different than the phones you can import from Europe? These NAM (North American)Heroes are capable of 3G on AT&T.
And it’s just rumor at this point but if you like rumors, try this one on for size: the Hero is apparently headed for AT&T (cha-ching for the subsidies!) early next year. No word on exact dates or unlikely spec bumps, but it’s still pretty good news, eh?
