The HTC Hero, which was initially launched in Europe back in 2009, was the flagship device to showcase Android 1.5. For all intents and purposes, it was the next best thing to sliced bread at the time, and it was only made better by HTC’s customized Sense User Interface (UI). Now, though, Android users are officially on Android 2.1, and Android 2.2 is right around the corner (officially, that is). So, where’s the update to 2.1 for the original 1.5 device? Apparently, it’s just now starting to roll out.

Well, they’re going to drop it in the market, soon, as an exact date hasn’t been given yet.
