Sprint HTC Hero: 2.1 Android Update Release Date is Q2

By Alan Ng - May 8, 2010

More on the never-ending HTC Hero 2.1 update saga for you now, as Sprint has issued a fresh statement, informing customers that the update to Android 2.1 will now be landing sometime in Q2.

As reported from BGR, a Sprint Admin posted a message on the official forums bearing the bad news. Don’t forget that this comes straight after it was rumored that the update would be landing on 7th May, only for a Sprint Admin to then post a message defueling the rumors.

However, a new message from Sprint reads like this: ”We are on track for the upgrade to be available in Q2. Sprint had hoped to have this resolved by now – we thank our customers for their patience as we work to bring them a positive experience with this upgrade.”

So it now looks likely that HTC Hero owners on Sprint will see the update in June or July – shame they couldn’t narrow it down further.
