HTC Hero unofficial release date July 7th 2009?

I had hoped that Orange UK might have removed the ‘Coming Soon’ tag from their HTC Hero in the Orange UK Shop by now, but so far… no such luck.

However, according to a recent comment by Robzor on the Engadget comment section for the most recent HTC Hero entry, it seems that the phone will – unofficially – be released on July 7th 2009?

Just spoke to a guy at Orange, “unofficial release date is July 7th” according to him, and he advised going to a retail store sometime in the next 5-7 days as they will get them first.

I’m tempted to visit an Orange Shop tomorrow just to see if this is true. In the meantime, visit the link above for more user comments or have a look at a similar comment thread on Android Phone Fans debating the pros and cons of Orange UK and T-Mobile‘s contracts for the HTC Hero.

p/s: It seems Mobile Industry Review’s Jonathan Mulholland got his hands on an Orange UK exclusive ‘graphite’ HTC Hero demo unit for a very brief moment!
