We’re not sure what is causing the delay, but T-Mobile is headquartered in Germany and the HTC Hero rebranded T-Mobile G2 Touch seems to be launching at the beginning of August there. Does that mean the UK will also be delayed until at least August 1st? Good question. A press release (translated to English) dated July 14th 2009 shows that August is indeed the German date (near the bottom) so we’re curious as to what other regions are expecting:
As of August at the start T-Mobile offers consumers the device from the beginning of August with 24-month term contract in the Combi Combi Relax and flat rates.
Shucks. We’ll keep you posted on other delays and dates as we learn more. I’d also like to report that I have no clue what Combi Combi Relax means but it sounds pretty sweet.
