    It says they will be releasing new devices and innovations. I didn't mean the event would just be for an update, but I wouldn't be surprised if they announced it then...

    And why wouldn't it be tied into a press event? They announce new phones, and Sense running on 2.1? Thats more than a simple phone update.

    Lekky I really want to believe it, but have they ever been known to announce something like this before at a press event?

    It could be all number of things but I don't think that it is related to Hero 2.1:(

    I don't see why they wouldn't tie it in.

    "Here is out projected product range for H1 of 2010, each Android model you see here is shipped with our own custom baked 2.1 Sense enabled Android OS which we CAN confirm is scheduled to be released for the Hero this coming week."
    <insert video demo of any major changes here>


    Easy, you see?

    From his own head, I think... it's more about how it could be done than how it has been done.

    By the end of March.
    Are HTC having a laugh.
    I shall be sticking with the android platform but i do know my next phone wont be a HTC.

    Ive never known a company that keeps on putting out rumours of updates via twitter that come to nothing.

    For those that are new to the phone im talking about 1.6 2.0 and now 2.1 if it ever happens.

    Yeah I was just addressing the confusing surrounding the whole "why would they throw a conference for that alone" etc.

    Sorry to confuse even further :p

    I think that's extremely unfair. 1.6 2.0 and 2.1 all came in quick succession. And it's not like HTC have an obligation to update your handset so you can't really bitch about it. I wouldn't say they put out rumours either, they give as much information as they can and they update their customers a lot more than most companies do.
    Personally I think HTC are awesome :)

    Meteor is a mobile operator probably selling branded (=software customized for the operator) Hero. HTC usually makes the new software for the unbranded version first, then for the branded ones.

    I'm pretty sure trying to install the unbranded firmware onto a branded phone won't work; you get a 'Customer ID' error. So you're stuck untill your network release theirs.

    As far as I know, the WWE version won't install on your Orange at all (unless you have rooted) so you won't have the option
