HTC Hero 2.1 Update: Release Date delayed till June

By Alan Ng - Apr 22, 2010

Well, we’re not sure how to break it to you guys, but it seems like the HTC Hero update to Android 2.1 has been delayed yet again. Instead of getting the update sometime in May as expected, you’ll now receive it in June.

As reported from T3, HTC has now issued a fresh statement regarding the highly anticipated update – and it is not good news. Despite all the numerous delays so far, HTC failed to acknowledge user’s frustrations, but instead had this to say about the update:

“HTC will be providing a free update to Éclair for European HTC Hero variants. Starting in June, anyone owning an HTC Hero will receive an initial preparatory update, shortly followed by the full Éclair update.”

Yet another bombshell by HTC Hero. Are you seriously considering updating via other methods, or will you patiently wait it out until June?

You never know guys, the iPhone 4G might be out by then. Let us know your reaction to this latest delay.
