Android 2.1 seen on HTC Hero?
Screenshots showing the HTC Hero running Android OS 2.1 have been circulating around the globe. As we reported, HTC has promised to upgrade the handset to 2.0 once it can upgrade the Sense UI to run on the newer build. When Google announced the Eclair update last month, it also said that it would have a minor update for Android 2.0 before the end of the year, so this 2.1 build fits perfectly with that story. We recently told you that the Sprint Hero received a minor OTA firmware upgrade, which might preclude an immediate upgrade to the Android OS for the Sprint branded unit. So if you are wondering when your Hero might start running the new Android build, there is no date yet that we can point to, but as soon as there is one, you KNOW you'll hear it from us.
