European HTC Hero handsets to get Android 2.0

A letter sent back to a curious HTC Hero owner from HTC Customer Support reveals the European version of the smartphone will skip the Android 1.6 update in favor of the latest update do the OS, 2.0. While no dates for the update were given, the HTC letter urges the customer to visit HTC's website regularly for the release. What is also unknown, but very likely, is that HTC Heros in other markets, the US included, will get a similar update and forego 1.6 altogether.

Among other features, the recently unveiled Android 2.0 software will bring with it multiple e-mail address support and native Microsoft Exchange compatibility. The web browser will be HTML5-capable and allow for multitouch inputs as well as double-tap zooming. Bluetooth 2.1 support will also come with the update. [via AndroidGuys]
