    I don't know how it would work for your Samsung Moment - but for the HTC Hero an update consists of a complete ROM reflash in pretty much the same way as you would update the ROM in a Windows phone. It's not done OTA but by running an RUU on your PC.

    Since Sprint have a version of the HTC Hero this could be what they are getting at.

    Edit: I think you will find that the Sprint Hero will get 2.1 when HTC release it with the modifications for HTC Sense. It was mentioned by HTC in a Twitter posting before Christmas.

    Since the moment is plain android, I think our update will come faster, as Sprint really doesn't need to make any adjustments to it.

    Im assuming this is an android design limitation? forgive me, im still learning but my old Pre had an 80mb update once and all of them come OTA. this blows!

    Not an Android limitation at all, it's a Sprint thing. From the article:
    Seems a little silly to me, and other carriers with Android are doing OTA updates, so I'm not sure why it's such a big deal. I personally have no problem with having to plug my phone into my computer to update it, but I'm not sure what percentage of the Sprint Android-owning population feels the same way.

    I seconded that.. If anything it's also faster than receiving it OTA.

    It would affect the Verizon-Android community as well.
