Android fans living in the land down under will be happy to know that HTC has announced the Hero and Tattoo for distribution at Harvey Norman locations around the country.Â In an exclusive deal with the retailer, Harvey Norman will carry the Hero for AUD $799 ($754 US) and Tattoo atÂ AUD $599 ($559 US).Â Both phones are unlocked and unrestricted by carrier.
â€œThese two new handsets are focused on personalisation and accessibility â€“ hallmarks of the HTC Sense experience,â€ said Anthony Petts, Sales and Marketing Director ANZ, HTC Corporation. â€œThe phones are equipped to directly reflect the userâ€™s mood, aesthetic and natural communication patterns. They are the manifestation of HTCâ€™s research and observations of human communication interactions and needs, joining a family of HTC phones designed specifically around user specifications.â€
It should be noted that Harvey Norman is not a wireless carrier.Â They are essentially a supertsore that carries computers, furniture, and other items in addition to electronics.Â Could you imagine Target or Wal-Mart being the exclusive provider of those phones here in the US?
