HTC Europe is releasing today a firmware upgrade to the HTC Hero. It’s still not the eagerly waited Android 2.1. update, but it’s close.
The update released today is actually a preparation for the full Android 2.1 rollout, which should also wipe the full HTC Hero system memory.
For now, minor application firmware updates the firmware-over-the-air client and the YouTube player.
HTC promises the Android 2.1 update will be released by the end of this month.
I’m sure many of you are disappointed this isn’t the Eclair update, but the most important part here is HTC made the first step preparing the European Hero for Android 2.1.
