Sprint to get Android 2.1 updates next month for HTC Hero and Samsung Moment

Sprint to get Android 2.1 updates next month for HTC Hero and Samsung Moment
Android users on Sprint, have you been jealous of all those Motorola DROID and Nexus One users carrying around their handsets with Android 2.1 installed? The good news is that it looks as though owners of the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment will get their phones upgraded to Android 2.1 sometime early next month.  A screen shot of leaked internal Sprint communications reveals that the pin-dropping network will see its Android models upgraded early in May. So there should be no more feelings of envy. In fact, sometime this summer when the EVO 4G is launched, that green monster called jealousy might be felt by those customers of the other networks.

Oh come on Phone Arena! The Hero has had pinch to zoom in the native browser and gallery since release! It is built into Sense. I can't believe you guys don't know this!

Yeah but the Samsung Moment doesn't have pinch to zoom. And Android 2.1 adds allot of features to Sence including pinch to zoom in google maps and other neat features as well.

I understand that. But, the writer referred to both phones and specifically mentioned pinch to zoom in the browser and gallery. That would be like saying both phones will go to 5 screens from 3, when the Hero already has 7. The features are different on both phones, because of Sense. For that reason, the features that are/will be on each phone can't be referred to as the same.

I'm just glad that in 2.1 there is much more support for Bluetooth. I hope that voice recognition over Bluetooth will be included in 2.1. AND devices with 2.1 will have flash when Adobe decides to release it. Previous versions will not have it.
