Sprint HTC Hero Update to 2.1 Coming on May 7th
This is just about getting ridiculous. Leak, after leak. And, here’s another one. This time around we’ve got one coming from Best Buy, of the obvious internal variety. It clearly states that a major ROM update is targeted for the HTC Hero, and it even has a date. Not that that’s any kind of conclusive evidence, but still. It’s something.
This time around, Best Buy’s got it on the down-low that the HTC Hero for Sprint is getting their major upgrade to Android 2.1 on May 7th. That’s only two days away. And no, that doesn’t mean that the international version of the HTC Hero is getting Android 2.1 on May 7th, either. Actually, it doesn’t clarify at all when the other versions of the Hero, like the Droid Eris on Verizon Wireless, are going to get the upgrade, either. Right now, all we can say is that the Sprint version seems the more likely of candidates for an “early” upgrade.
