Sprint Tweet: Hero and Moment to get Android 2.0 in 1H 2010
Sprint customers using the Android powered HTC Hero or the Samsung Moment had their spirits lifted sharply on Friday. A Tweet sent out by Sprint said that both devices would get an upgrade to Android 2.0, and while the date was to be determined, it would probably be sometime in the first half of next year. The reason for the seemingly long time before the upgrade may have to do with HTC having problems bringing the Sense UI up to the same 2.0 level as the Android OS. The Moment doesn't have such problems, so we are not sure what is holding back Sprint on this model. Both phones are currently powered by the 1.5 version of Google's open source OS. Time does matter for Sprint because, as we recently informed you, Verizon is planning on updating its HTC DROID ERIS model to Android 2.0 or 2.1 sometime in Q1 next year.
