Oh boy. Yesterday Quentyn posted a story stating the HTC Hero update to 2.1 would be available at the end of April for European Hero owners. Now an internal posting by Sprint acknowledging “customers are eager for Android 2.1” says that the “much anticipated” update will be available in early May for HTC Hero and Samsung Moment owners in the US.
Maybe this time it’s for real! Having waited through delay after delay waiting for the 2.1 update for the Motorola Droid, I understand the position Hero and Moment users are in, and I’m pulling for you. At least Sprint is preparing their employees to field customer concerns and questions about 2.1, so it sounds like if you get to pestering the people at your local Sprint retailer you may be able to get some answers.
