The HTC Hero, of recent fame and notoriety, has shown its unique face (strong chin and all) on the Orange UK Website, it's first official appearance on a UK carrier's site. The HTC Hero is listed as 'coming soon' so there is no 'official' pricing option on the website but earlier reports had the Hero fully subsidized with qualifying plans.

Engadget reports that pricing details will be finalized today and that we should hear official word soon. We'd expect T-Mobile to put up their version of the HTC Hero, the G1 Touch, on their website soon. We can't help but feel jealous about all the Android offerings across the pond.
