T-Mobile UK to get Hero as G2 Touch this month

T-Mo UK G2 Touch

T-Mobile UK today confirmed through its Twitter feed that the HTC Hero will come to its network, rebadged as the G2 Touch. The carrier doesn't detail how if at all the phone will change from the reference version, but it does say the G2 Touch will ship in July and come for free with a 40 per month, 18-month contract. Orange UK has already said it would offer the phone this month for free on a two-year plan.

The Hero is poised to be the first Android phone with a genuinely customized interface through Sense, a custom UI that brings contacts, media, Twitter and other features to the top level of the phone through widgets. It's similarly HTC's most advanced Android phone with a 5-megapixel camera, 7.2Mbps 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi. Among other companies' devices, it's unique for including both an oil-resistant touchscreen as well as an anti-scratch Teflon back.
