Is he referring to the Passion running 2.1 and Sense? Or the fact that HTC is going to be running Sense UI (Which is an HTC function, not a 3rd party app btw) on Android 2.1, on devices such as the Hero and Droid Eris (which is the latest rumor)
I think he was implying that Passion would be running 2.1 and Sense. That's not been confirmed. But yes, 2.1 will be coming to Hero/Eris as well as DROID by the end of the month or early January. Okay, Sense UI is a 2nd party app. HTC developed it and it sits on top of Android OS.
