    Does anyone know if the upcoming Android 2.1 update to the Sprint Hero will allow us to save apps to the SD card without having to root the phone?

    And also, some things to think about: remember that the Hero only runs class 2 speeds, even if the card is class 6. Do you think this will change once we recieve Android 2.1? Because if not, I would imagine that the phone would be slow opening apps (assuming apps to SD will be available).

    I know that if they do program the Hero to allow class 6 speeds, and allow apps to SD (without root) then the Hero could run MUCH faster than it does now...

    I seriously doubt 2.1 will allow storing apps on the SD card, as 2.0 will not (we know this from the Droid experiences).

    Read the google site for information about 2.1.

    Google does not allow apps to be installed to the SD card.
