Today Orange UK announced that it will be adding the HTC Hero to its handset portfolio.  The phone will be available free to customers who sign up for a 24 month £39.15/mo contract, which includes 1200 network minutes, unlimited text, and internet browsing.  It will be available in “early July”, though we’ve been told by other, non-Orange retail sources that the device will officially be available from distributers on July 3rd (though not necessarily through Orange).  Below is a video demo of the device that Orange posted.
