hero-otaVerizon recently pushed the Android 2.1 update to Motorola Droid’s around America and now its time for the HTC Hero to get its dose of goodness. Continue crying Droid Eris and Sprint Hero owners… this one is only rumored for the European HTC Hero. That doesn’t mean you won’t get it sooner or later, it just means this latest rumor is not associated.

According to HTC Club, an inquiry regarding the 2.1 update for the Hero was sent to HTC who responded with the following:

Thank you for contacting us,

Regarding your request, kindly be informed that there are Rom upgrades to the HTC Hero released for the handsets with the following Roms Nordic/Greek/RUS/UKR/SA on the 16th of April.

Just to reiterate those key points:

  • HTC Hero
  • Android 2.1

This is the kind of stuff we like to hear – let the waiting begin continue! Oh yeah, and for the record, this is filed as a rumor.
