Well T-Mobile customers, it looks like you can’t have your myTouch 3G and eat your Hero, too. Great news trickled through this morning as the myTouch 3G became available for pre-order to current T-Mobile subscribers. On the flip side of the coin however, T-Mobile USA CTO Cole Brodman confirmed at a T-Mobile event today what many had expected — the highly anticipated HTC Hero will not be coming to the nation’s number four wireless carrier. Brodman’s exact words: “[T-Mobile USA] has no plans to bring the HTC Hero to market.” It’s definitely a shame considering the high desirability factor carried by HTC’s upcoming handset but there’s still hope the Hero will drop with AT&T in the near future. So what do you think, T-Moblers — sad to learn there’s no Hero in your future or will the myTouch 3G suit your Android-loving needs while we wait for the next generation of T-Mobile Android handsets?
