T-Mobile UK announced through its twitter channel that it will be offering the HTC Hero as the G1 Touch starting in mid-July. It will be available for free starting at £40 per month on a Flext plan, which includes £225 of credit and unlimited internet browsing.
The company highlights the fact that the G1 Touch (and Hero) has a 7 panel wide home screen, which will let users put all of those shiny new HTC Widgets to good use. They also highlight the multi-touch zooming control, which the device sorely needs.
You’ll find a couple of images of the G1 Touch after the jump.
