T-Mobile G2 Touch

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The T-Mobile G2 Touch is simply the HTC Hero with an identity crisis. Eager to follow in the footsteps of the G1 name, T-Mobile UK simply rebranded the HTC Hero as the T-Mobile G2 Touch. Interestingly enough, they initially officially tweeted that G1 Touch would be the name but that only lasted a few days before G2 Touch became the official name.

The G2 Touch is identical to the HTC Hero except for branding including its 5 megapixel camera, 3.2" inch capacitive display and 528MHz processor.

The T-mobile G2 Touch is available now for you to purchase on contract , alternatively you can buy an HTC Hero sim-free and unlocked. What you waiting for? Go grab one!
