HTC Hero: 2.1 Update Delay – New Release Date is May

It is going from bad to worse for HTC Hero owners. After the initial delays of the 2.1 Android update, we told you yesterday that the update was finally due at the end of this month – until Sprint released a fresh statement today that is.

As reported from Phandroid, the carrier sent out an internal memo today, in which they acknowledged that their customers are patiently awaiting the arrival of the update.

However, they informed us that the update for the HTC Hero, as well as the Samsung Moment will now be available early May.

Is it worth asking how Sprint customers feel at the moment? We thought the 2.1 update saga would be finally over this month, but now the pending update will be dragged into the first weeks of May.

Not too good is it?

    I've been telling everyone not to buy the Hero in hopes that it will spread word of mouth that people shouldn't get it. I think it is 100% ridiculous that they've been giving everyone who spent a LOT of money on these phones the run around concerning an update that improves a lot of basic phone functioning. It seriously makes me want to switch to ATT and get the iPhone 4G. It wouldn't even bother me if they had said from the start "It'll be out in May" Instead they made a lot of vague statements and gave way to a lot of rumors and fake days that left customers twice as pissed off as before. I can only hope that people who buy the Evo have better luck than we did.
