I've got about 45mins to decide between getting the HTC Hero or Blackberry 8520. Which would you go for?

The guy is ringing me back to see which I'd rather go for, but I don't really know a lot about either phone so I'm going to have a look online now. I just thought I'd get some advise from you guys also. Both deals will cost me £20 a month with 400mins unl txt and internet plus insurance. He did say that there would be other choices of Blackberry's but some I may need to pay extra for.
What would you go for?
Thanks for any help.


I'd go for the Blackberry 8520.

i'd personally take the hero


very versatile and a top phone!

Hero all the way, i love mine :-)

Hero for sure. I've just got an HTC magic and LOVE having an android phone...good friend has hero and its great.

Its got to be a HERO for sure. The BB 8520 is a fairly basic handset and lacks much of the features in the HERO such as GPS, 3G, hi-res touchscreen. Its BB entry phone, so comes with a cheap price tag. You can get one on Orange for £159 PAYG. The only thing good about the BB is the keyboard. Now if you want a proper keyboad for emailing and it has to be a Blackberry consider the new BB BOLD 9700. Its a really nice handset. Shames its not as customisable as the HERO and flexible as the ANDROID OS.

HERO it is.

Good luck.

Hero for sure
