    Oh that' sucks, especially if they do a PC only update, they're leaving the Mac users out of the loop. Hmm, now I might just hold off until I know Sprint is delivering with 1.6 installed.

    After reading the full article I'm seriously considering holding off on the purchase of the Hero.

    This just sucks the big one.

    "Sprint phones will also lack the new Android Market that is packaged with Android 1.6. The new quick search box, camera, gesture controls, and all other enhancements will have to wait till 2010."

    I use Mac's as well. When this is released will I be able to just hope on a friend's PC, download it and install it?

    I might have to install Windows on my Mac.

    I didn't even think about that. I don't see any reason they wouldn't.

    The other problem is going to be newer apps, if the developers don't make them backward compatible to 1.5 we could be missing out on a lot of good stuff.

    Just found this about 1.6.

    The HTC Hero recently received a software (ROM) update, improving the performance of the handset. However, the firmware version of Android remained at v1.5 (Cupcake). The next firmware update (v1.6 – codenamed Donut) will not be released until October. Sprint users will be happy to know that its HTC Hero handset will have v1.6 installed out of the box, according to Pocket-Lint.

    Guess we'll have to wait until Friday to find out

    See if Chris were a true Sprint employee who wanted to make his customers happy he would call a buddy at tech support and get us the real scoop. :D

    HA. Typcial. It never gets old does it?

    Do you think sometimes they lie, just so you will leave them alone? Imagine all the calls they must be getting lately, I bet it would feel good once in awhile to just say "Hero? Nope, we dont carry that. Is there anything else I can assist you with today?"
