HTC Hero photos show Anrdoid 2.1?

The HTC Hero smartphone may skip Android 2.0 entirely in favor of Android 2.1, according to recently leaked photos of the device's screen with what appears to be an upcoming Android build. HTC had previously said it won't incorporate Android 2.0 into its handsets until it can fully optimize its compatibility with HTC's own Sense UI touch interface.

The photos do not reveal any changes in Android 2.1 compared to the Android 2.0 build, though full details are not known. HTC has been rumored to skip Android builds in the past, with the 1.6 version of the operating system being passed over in favor of Android 2.0 for the Hero. The Dream (T-Mobile G1) and Magic (T-Mobile myTouch 3G) are both made by HTC and use Android 1.6. [via BGR]
