HTC says Sense UI reason for Android 2 delay

HTC has likely pushed back an update to Android 2.0 for the Hero to March. A contact from Irish carrier Meteor says HTC has had to spend time integrating its Sense UI front end with the new Google OS and that it now expects the upgrade to arrive in March. Android 2.1 also isn't immediately in the cards.

The scheduling leaves the handset going several months while remaining on Android 1.5. As such, current Heroes and the Droid Eris are locked out of most modern Android features, such as voice recognition, Google Maps Navigation and an official HTML5 web browser. Reference Android phones like the T-Mobile G1 and myTouch 3G have had a quicker path through upgrades as they require little to no work beyond what Google has already accomplished. [via Leakdroid]
