HTC Hero update to Android 2.1 pegged for mid-March -- Engadget
Hopefully 3 will release it quickly!
Interesting, hopefully this one is true and we get it next month!
Just read this over on Engadget and rushed here but you obviously beat me to the post. Quite literally haha.
I know my reactions were too quick...I was like I HAVE to report this...too exciting.
This is by no means solid proof.
Even so, Engadget is a better bet than any of the other sources of rumours we've had.
Anyone else notice that Google's new Buzz requires Android 2.0+?
A sure sign that being left out on 1.5 will soon mean missing more and more features and applications.
I know, was gutted when I tried to check out buzz on my phone only to see it wasn't supported
In relation to this engadget thing though, saw this earlier, timing seems about right but they don't give any proper source for it do they..?
They seem to have a bit more information here,
New Hero ROM must be available - Android @ MoDaCo
nice about a month from now...
So what will we get with this update? Will it be worthwhile? The only thing i'm wanting is bluetooth capabilities (i.e. sending/receiving pictures etc). I'm totally clueless when it comes to stuff like this - but i do love my Hero xx
Jeebus, that took long enough. I just want to be able to run new programs meant for 1.6 and above!
Wow that's ridiculous. Last time I checked it was supposed to be mid February. Ugh.
This is 4th or 5th info about 2.1 release for Hero yet. Hopefully, this one is true and real info. It is very sad, that HTC is treating their costumers this way....
If I knew this info before my purchase of Hero, I probably wouldn't buy it ....
Psh course you would have
Well, maybe yes I would .....
Sadly HTC has got a bad reputation when it comes to keeping its customers informed.
As opposed to companies like apple, or samsung.
Mark Moons, Regional Director HTC Benelux, recently confirmed Android 2.1 for HTC Hero will become available in March.
For a new htc hero user, installing this (when it comes out) is straight foward?
Please say yes
Yes, should be a case of just downloading a file and then running it on your PC with your phone connected. You may want to backup your files first.
My birthday is mid-March - this must be the present I hoped for
