T-Mobile G2 Touch

The T-Mobile G2 Touch (also known as the HTC Hero), is the third Android handset to be manufactured by HTC, and ultimately the second Android phone to launch on the T-Mobile UK network.

The G2 Touch is the fully touch-screen older brother of the popular T-Mobile G1 handset, and includes a whole host of new features.

Some of the most popular features of the G2 Touch phone are its 3.5mm headphone jack (the 3.5mm audio has been noticeably absent from previous HTC Android phones), multi-touch capability, and ofcourse full support for Adobe flash player.

The T-Mobile G2 Touch will also be the first Android phone to include a custom built HTC user interface known as 'Rosie', along with the HTC specific HTC Sense UI.

A Guide to The G2 Touch

The HTC Sense user interface allows for far better widget customisation of the Android home screen that will enable users to display their most favoured information directly from the main Android screen.

The G2 Touch will also feature an industry first teflon coating that will help prevent chips and scratches on the handset. The phone's unique finish also includes smudge and finger print protection to help keep the handset clean.

    This all sounds great, Except: where is the physical keyboard? Does this version of the phone come with hardware-chip or software capability to have USB host? That way, the Hundreds of contract-creating and would-be business partners who want to put an HTC phone in their mobile system would be able to use USB products from other customers, using either open source drivers, or simple Google applications and/or API to interact with the Linux OS.

    The earphone being built in is FANTASTICALLY AWESOME. Congratulations, HTC for getting it right on the 3rd try, for that part.

    Capacitive screen; high-tech.; nice touch (pun intended).

    Again, software keyboards are the bane of ALL Linux enthusiasts and widget/application developers. Tactile feedback is much better (even if it is an Android G1). Please add USB host capability(!).

    I also like how your test group is in the U.K.; much more uniform (dangerous assumptions). Try Northern California yet?

    Peace out, HTC and Android.org : keep up the good work!

    Use google maps’ car navigation with the phone charging and this phone will get hot, the touch screen will delaminate a little and stop working – I’ve had the same thing happen three times. Do yourself a favour, if you want to use google maps’ car navigation don’t get this phone. Aditionally the screen is not quite big enough to allow text input to work well.
