Bad news, fellow T-Mo' subscribers. The much-anticipated HTC Hero will not be coming to T-Mobile. This puts a bit of a damper on recent happy news that the myTouch 3G is available for pre-order today.

Don't get me wrong, the myTouch is a nice phone, and I'm sure it does the Android OS proud, but it doesn't have nearly the 'hot' factor of the Hero. It's also not as advanced of a smartphone, and missing out on the Sense UI is going to be quite painful for a lot of us.

It sounds to me like T-Mo's reasoning on this decision was that they'd just released an Android smartphone and have a whole slew of others due later in the year. It could just be that T-Mobile felt they were way too saturated with Android phones as it was. Do you think T-Mobile made the right decision? Is the myTouch equal to the Hero? Let us know.
