While HTC was making a song and dance over the Hero, T-Mobile launched their own version of the same handset only in black and with a name noticeably devoid of the actual manufacturer – the T-Mobile G1 Touch. I wonder if Peter Chou and his men have scratched HTC somewhere on it in very small letters?
The important difference – apart from the colour, obvs – is that T-Mobile has got some prices for us. It’s available for free – good start – from £40 a month on Flext which gives you £225 of effective credit to spend on any mix of UK and international calls and texts, picture messages, 08 numbers, voicemail and includes “unlimited” data.
