We're getting ready to enjoy the Magic-based myTouch 3G here in the States -- but in the UK, which is centuries ahead of the US in terms of Android technology (they're running the French Cruller code branch over there), they're about to launch a version of the Hero instead as the G2 Touch. The carrier's European divisions have been expected to get the phone over the next few weeks, and British customers in particular will be pleased to know that it'll be up online tomorrow and in stores "over the next few days." That's fine, T-Mobile, whatever -- we'd rather have the myTouch anyway. Hmph.
