T-Mobile UK to call its Hero the G2 Touch
Originally, T-Mobile UK was planning on giving its version of the HTC Hero the name G1 Touch. In a Twitter message earlier today, the British carrier announced that it was going to name the device the T-Mobile G2 Touch. The networker went on to add that the handset would be free with an 18 month contract costing 40 British Pounds monthly (approximately $65 U.S. Dollars). The G2 Touch will be launched later this month, according to the tweet.

That begs the question, has T-Mobile UK given up on using the G1 name? Of course, T-Mobile USA uses G1 for its QWERTY keyboard enabled Android device, and perhaps the British carrier is saving this for a future Android handset that features a physical keyboard. As we recently reported,
T-Mobile USA has decided not to offer the Hero, with its Sense UI and flash support, and is focusing instead on the August 5th launch of the myTouch 3G Android phone.
