For those who don't know the name, Haykuro is an Android hacker who tends to get his hands on exclusive stuff and present it to the masses in packages so simple that even I can figure out how to use them. I don't know how he does it. He just does. And he dropped another bomb on xda-devs today.

It's an Android build from HTC for an upcoming phone called Hero. And it looks like the device will ship with some major Android updates - including HTC sync. That effectively means push email. Check the end of the video for proof of what phone the software was designed for (4:14). Unfortunately, this particular code can't be posted for legal reasons, so I won't be able to demo it for you guys - at least not yet. But this guy can. Did I mention that he's 17? Yeah.
