HTC has launched its follow up to the HTC Hero at this year's Mobile World Congress and we were on hand to have a play (for a second time) and a chance to take some photos.

Yes the aluminium case is the same as the Apple MacBook Pro and yes it's a lot smaller than the HTC Hero thanks to a new uni-body design that means they don't have to worry about a case that sits over a shell.

Yours to own in March in the UK, it's not as yet getting a US release, but that won't stop HTC no doubt coming up with an operator specific version as it did with the Sprint Hero and Droid Eris for Sprint and Verizon.

Make sure you read our more in-depth first look review where we were given access ahead of the official launch.
