    HTC Hero on Orange UK launch date delayed? 

    According to this article on Engadget by Thomas Ricker, it seems that the launch of the HTC Hero been pushed back, with Amazon.co.uk – one of the sellers of the SIM Free versions of the phone – now posting a release date as far off as August 15th 2009!

    However, one comment by SteviDVD caught my attention, as he said that:

    I got a message from Orange to say that it will be out within a week but didn’t give a date as it is still in testing.
    I think it will be coming out on contract before sim only.

    I think I might have to join the legions of people ringing up Orange on a daily basis to find out when this phone is going to be launched! Clearly the most desirable phones – HTC Hero and the Nokia N97 – are so in demand that the mobile operators are finding it difficult to get them out on time.

    Sadly, as I am now into the first 15 days of my SIM only 30 day rolling Dolphin 20 contract, it will be at least another 2.5 months before I will be able to upgrade.

    Nokia N97 listed as “Coming Soon” on Orange UK Shop but no stock for another 3 weeks? 

    Just spotted the Nokia N97 listed as “Coming Soon” in the online Orange UK Shop just today!

    More information about the phone can be found here and the phone is listed as pay monthly from free. However, the devasting news for Nokia N97 fans is that, according to TradingMarkets.com, Orange UK staff have been told that sadly, Orange will not have stock for another 3 weeks.

    p/s: According to a thread on AVforums, this might possibly be due to the phones failing Orange’s tests and so they needed to be returned.

    HTC Hero due out with Orange in July? 

    Still nothing in Orange UK‘s mobile shop window about the HTC Hero, but if the BBC are mentioning it – specifically Rory Cellan-Jones on the dot.life blog – then I’m guessing it is true that HTC Hero will be with Orange UK soon.

    And to back this up, Unwired View has not only provided us with the first live pictures of HTC Hero courtesy of  Mobile Review (Russian) and GSM Helpdesk (Dutch), it has also said that Orange UK will be the first provider of the phone, which will potentially be due out in early July!

    Here’s one of the photos of the Hero from GSM Helpdesk to whet your appetite:

    p/s: In case you’re interested, Cellan-Jones, the BBC’s technology correspondent, compared the Nokia N97 with the iPhone 3gs in what he called “Battle of the smartphones” earlier this month, where it turns out neither are really that perfect. Hopefully he’ll compare more smartphones (such as the Palm Pre and HTC Hero) in future articles, as I am really starting to wonder if I should opt for a smartphone instead of the HTC Touch Diamond 2?

    p/s: The HTC Touch Pro 2 has finally made it’s way to Orange UK via the Business Shop!

    Nokia N97… not available through Orange UK either 

    Chatted with some fellow Orange UK customers yesterday and it turns out that the Nokia N97 – touted as another serious iPhone 3gs contender  (along with the HTC Touch Pro 2) – is also, like the Touch Pro 2 and HTC Diamond 2, not available directly through Orange either!

    What’s going on?
