I created a new skin for the emulator. It is the HTC HERO. Since I don't like the emulator window to take so much space on my screen (and also since the HTC Hero does not come with a hardware keyboard) I created this skin wihtout an on-screen keyboard.
You can download it here: http://www.impressive-artworx.de/tutorials/android/emulator/skins/htc_hero.rar
After downloading, you have to un-rar the archive into the following folder <your path to the android sdk
Edit the runtime configuration of the emulator by adding "-skin HTC_HERO" to it.
