    Okay, so i've been reading about the new Update and just today i seen that the HTC Hero is getting the update by Christmas
    HTC Hero: Official Android 2.1 update by Christmas
    And in different sites they say that since this is a GSM phone that CDMA phones cannot get the new update, but in other sites they say that in 1.6 they encoded CDMA into it or something, so my questions are:
    1)Will the Sprint Hero get the 2.1 update?
    2)And if not, then why?

    By Christmas, doubtful.

    HTC has confirmed they are working on 2.0 for our Hero and Sprint has suggested that it will happen in Q1.

    Ultimately who knows when we'll actually get it.
