The HTC Hero has finally landed on the Orange UK website but sports an unfortunate “Coming Soon” for those wishing to pin down a price, launch date or even Pre-Order. We saw the HTC Hero hit Amazon yesterday and there is little doubt that T-Mobile UK will announce the Hero as the G1 Touch in the near future.


And some of the glorious Hero specs:

  • 5-megapixel camera
  • 3.2 inch touch screen
  • MP3 player
  • Bluetooth®
  • Music Player
  • microSD external memory
  • TFT touch screen
  • touch screen
  • multi-touch input
  • handwriting recognition
  • trackball
  • 3.5 mm audio jack
  • vibrating alert
  • speakerphone
  • polyphonic ring tones
  • video playback
  • HSDPA, 7.2Mbps
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g
  • email
  • Java™ capable
  • GPS
  • GPRS
  • USB compatible
  • Autofocus

5MP and 3.5mm headset jack is just… so yummy.Engadget has been directly in touch with Orange who are confirming that:

  • It will be free with some service plans (as we previously reported)
  • A price will should come by tomorrow
