Alaska's ACS Now Offers HTC Hero, Special Android Plans

We don’t know how many of you guys reside in Alaska but we figured we’d pass this along anyways.  Alaska Communications Systems (ACS) has announced the arrival of the HTC Hero as well as new, dedicated rate plans for Android handsets.  ACS is not the first smaller/regional carrier to offer Android phones, but the introduction of a specialized Android plan intrigues us.

Called ACS Android Life, the monthly plan includes unlimited nationwide talk, unlimited data, unlimited text, “exclusive ACS Android Life benefits” for $99 per month.  Family plans are somewhat discounted at $188 per month for the first two Android Life users.  Additional lines are $79 each.  It’s not known what the “exclusive benefits” are so if you happen to live in Alaska, hit us up!

We did find a neat little mini-site called “U of Android” which looks to help educate their subscribers on all things Android and Hero.  It includes photos, videos, and more to get users off on the right foot.
