HTC Hero to get Android 2.1 starting April 16th?

updated 05:05 pm EDT, Mon April 5, 2010

HTC Android 2.1 rollout for Droid due on April 16

The HTC Hero handset will be upgraded to Android 2.1 on April 16th, according to an e-mail an owner of the device received from HTC. This date applies to Hero owners who reside in Norway, Greece, Russia, the Ukraine and South Africa only, however, with the latest ROM reaching HTC handsets from other markets soon afterwards. The date potentially conflicts with an earlier leak that had Sprint upgrading the Hero to Android 2.1 on April 9th.

The release is part of a wider plan of HTC upgrading every Android handset with the latest version 2.1 of the operating system. The update will bring HTC's Sense UI, overall faster performance and a number of tweaks that include improved home screen navigation, live wallpapers, voice typing and a 3D photo gallery, among others.

    Two unrelated rumors?

    From what I understand, the HTC Hero in the Asia/Europe market is a completely different phone from the HTC Hero on the U.S. Sprint network. As such, I would imagine that the two April upgrade dates are coincidental, but unrelated. As an HTC Hero (Sprint) owner, I'm hopeful, but not terribly optimistic about the upgrade date.
