Once again, there is good news and bad news for some of our HTC Hero owners who’ve been stuck with Android 1.5 for nearly a year now. The good news is that HTC has finally brought the upgrade to Android 2.1 out for the phone. The bad news is that it’s only for the Taiwanese HTC Hero.
HTC is beginning their over the air process to get this update pushed out to all Taiwanese Hero owners. The software version will be dubbed 3.31.751.1 and will be the same Android 2.1 that many are now currently enjoying on other Sense-enabled HTC phones. While there’s no word on an update for other regions yet, this is a good sign that you guys won’t be far behind.
