Sprint HTC Hero: Android 2.1 Update Release Date – Delayed

By Alan Ng - May 6, 2010

What on earth is Sprint trying to do to their customers? Yesterday we informed you that the 2.1 update to Android would finally be coming tomorrow, since a Best Buy leak seemingly confirmed this in black and white, but now a Sprint admin on the official forums has once again thrown everything into chaos.

If you head over to the Sprint Forums, and the thread which details the Best Buy leak we mentioned, you’ll see that an admin has closed the thread with the following message:

”Closing this thread because I don’t want folks to think that 2.1 is coming out on the 7th.”

So it appears that not only was the Best Buy ‘leak’ incorrect, Sprint customers have once again got their hopes up, only to be let down by their carrier.

When will the madness end we wonder? If they are trying to keep their customers from switching carrier, they are not doing a very good job of it.

Let us know your thoughts on this.
