HTC Hero Android 2.1 update scheduled for March - HTC Source
HTC has been talking about Android 2.0 and 2.1 for a long time now. If you own an HTC Magic, you’re most likely running on Android 1.6 already, but if you’re a proud owner of HTC’s flagship HTC Hero, you’ve been stuck on Android 1.5 since launch. Meteor (an Irish mobile operator) has just announced that HTC will be rolling out Android 2.1 to the Hero in late March.
Just got another update on this and HTC have said they are releasing 2.1 on the Hero and we are hoping to have this available by the end of March.
This will be available via the HTC website and we are also looking at other ways to make this update easier to access for our customers. As soon as I hear any more on this I’ll let you all now because I know the release of 2.1 is something that everyone is looking forward to.
This is great news for Meteor customers and those who purchased an unlocked GSM HTC Hero. Now let’s just hope that Sprint and Verizon and give us an update on when they plan on rolling out their OTA android 2.1 releases for their CDMA DROID Eris and Hero handsets.
