T-Mobile USA's Android smartphone fans might be sad to hear that the company's CTO, Cole Brodman, said at a press event today in New York that his company has no plans to offer HTC's newly launched HTC Hero smartphone to T-Mobile USA customers.
The HTC Hero caused a bit of commotion when it was launched last month due largely to its brand new user interface, which is part of HTC's Sense initiative - the same force behind the company's TouchFLO 3D UI for Windows Mobile smartphones. Customers were unhappy that T-Mobile USA opted to offer the myTouch 3G, a device based upon the HTC Magic that has been available for some time, instead of jumping directly to the HTC Hero that is being offered next month by the carrier's European counterparts.
