A member of XDA-forums “yrrep” has posted what he claims to be the timetable of Android 2.1 being rolled out to European HTC Hero’s AKA T-mobile G2.

Here’s a copy and paste of the supposed roll-outAndroid-21-Hero

This is the update schedule –

HTC EU (Nordic/Greek/RUS/UKR/SA) 2010/4/2

TMO – UK TMO 2010/4/16

UK/ES Orange 2010/4/16

TMO – DE TMO 2010/4/16

SFR signature Orange 2010/4/22

ZA(Vodacom) HTC 2010/4/22

H3G UK H3G 2010/4/22

HTC BE HTC 2010/5/4

HTC TUR HTC 2010/5/4

TMO – PL TMO 2010/5/10

TMO – HU TMO 2010/5/10

TMO – MK TMO 2010/5/10

And His source:

I was privy to an email at work…

:]

You can call HTC direct, ask them when the update is due, and they will confirm… if they read their bloody emails!

Well he told me I could call HTC – So I did! 2 different operators have told me what’s on their system- obviously reading from the screen. I was told :

Unbranded HTC Hero , T-mobile UK & Orange UK:

Update available online from 16th April

Update OTA from 30th April

Network 3 UK (H3G UK):

22nd April – online

5th May – OTA

So one thing, HTC Hero 2.1 is CONFIRMED and it’s coming soon, very very soon – in April by the looks of it!  What info I was told over the phone matches what the XDA post said so I think it’s safe to say it seems like the real deal – the “Bees Knees” – the “mutts Nu……. Well you get the idea.

I bet this is very exciting news for European Hero owners living with the outdated 1.5 – except those who may mod. Roll on 2.1 and all your sweeeeeet goodness!
