Two weeks ago, O2 Germany has announced the release of the HTC Hermes as O2 Xda trion (O2 Germany's first UMTS Pocket PC, since the German operator skipped the HTC Universal aka O2 Xda Exec) but so far it was silent what O2 UK is planning in regards to this device.
But now it looks like UK is skipping a device and it seems that we got the (bad but official) confirmation, that O2 UK isn't taking the HTC Hermes at all; at least that's the feedback, "Oliver" got from the O2 UK Customer Technical Support:
Unfortunately the device will not be sold within the UK, this will be sold within Germany and possibly other parts of Europe although will not be in the UK device.
Ouch, if this turns out to be true, it would be - indeed - bad news for O2 UK's customers. Hopefully the technical support isn't too good informed about what the product management is going to release.
Thanks to Oliver for the update and please keep us posted!
