    Hi,
    Have been usining Windows Mobile since day 1 and have finally got sick of not receiving calls, so..l

    ...just got myself an HTC Hero with Android...

    ...few things I can't find...

    Voice Activated calling - so that I can use hands-free in the car.

    Is this available in Android?

    Thanks.

    HTC are working on a ROM update.. takes them some time due to the senseUI, once it's ready you'll be able to grab it off HTC's site or (guessing you're from the states) Sprint may do it over the air but no idea on that.

    I'm glad to hear this.
    Have you any kind of source about this, I mean, is this.. "official"?

    You got HTC's twitter feed saying (http://twitter.com/htc/status/5243593307):
    Since we already know donut had voice dialling then it will definitely be in

    What gave you the idea that I was in the US?

    I'm actually in the UK.

    Any idea when droid 2.0 will be available for the Hero?

    Thanks,

    B (UK)
