Whilst those of us in the UK are lucky enough to have the HTC Hero released in both sim-free and contract versions, other countries are still waiting. We now know that the HTC Hero smartphone will be released on August 6th in Germany according to this Amazon.de listing. Only the graphite version is dated and will cost €459.97; the white Hero is still not dated. Either way, there’s not long to wait now.
The HTC Hero will be released on T-Mobile Germany as the T-Mobile G2 Touch (much like the UK) at some point in August, however no firm date is been earmarked. We’ll keep you posted on further developments.
