T-Mobile launches myTouch 3G; no plans for HTC Hero

Google's Android OS is still revving to invade the smartphone market

While Google Chrome OS is the hottest news right now, Google's Android OS is still revving to invade the smartphone market. At the T-Mobile myTouch 3G launch event in New York City this morning, T-Mobile execs announced that the T-Mobile myTouch 3G is available for online pre-orders starting today. Delivery is guaranteed by August 5.

If you haven't read anything about the myTouch 3G, go on over to t-mobilemytouch.com and check it out. The slick, full touchscreen handset wowed us (see our review of the Google ION, a similar version of the myTouch 3G) and the Android OS 1.5 update brings in some much-needed features and smoother aesthetics.

When asked if they had any plans for the HTC Hero, T-Mobile CTO Cole Brodman said that the carrier "has no plans to bring the HTC Hero to market." The HTC Hero is another full touch Android-based phone with a revamped HTC-branded user interface. The device is the first Android smartphone to support multi-touch (ala the iPhone and the Palm Pre) and--even better--Adobe Flash.

T-Mobile was a safe bet for the Hero since the carrier launched the only other HTC-manufactured Android handsets. Personally, I would love to see one of the CDMA carriers, Sprint or Verizon, get a little Android love. Either way, I, among many others, can't wait to see this phone come to market.
