    Pretty much what I would have expected.
    I owned a hero at 1.5 and it was upgraded to 2.1 but not until AFTER the Desire launched with 2.1.
    It makes sense on many levels. Don't compromise sales of your shiny new devices by having old ones on the same OS level at launch.
    but don't piss off your existing customers ( i.e. future potential re-buyers) by abandoning them completely as soon as their phone is not current any more.
    Its not perfect but its a much better deal than customers get from most manufactures. You know who you are Samsung.

    I think the Hero (GSM) got the 2.1 update about the same time as the Desire got its 2.2 update

    Lol too many excitable kiddies around :D Personally I think gingerbread is overrated it doesnt bring much to the table compared to what froyo brought. What y'all think?

    Most of the changes are in the back ground. I find it fast and stable, but other than that and (on vanilla android) the slight GUI changes in menus etc, user experience doesnt change a lot.

    I love the battery usage graphs available, but wish they could still split up "android system" some more. It still doesnt tell us much.

    I dont think I would be satisfied with a completely stock vanilla gingerbread, but I am loving all the CM settings I had grown accustomed to in Defrost, now they are mostly in GingerVillain.

    I think the custom rom experience differs a lot from the stock / pure experience.
