The long wait is coming to an end - the HTC Hero is finally getting the Android 2.1 update this April. The CDMA version of the Hero is getting the update too, a bit sooner in fact (March 26). But it's the GSM version that interests us, so here it goes.
The Android 2.1 Eclair update for the HTC Hero will begin rolling out in European countries in April. It won't happen all at once, some countries will have to wait till May to get it.
Here's what the schedule looks like:
Nordic countries, Greece, Russia, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia - April 2
T-Mobile UK - April 16
Orange UK - April 16
Orange Spain - April 16
T-Mobile Germany - April 16
Orange France - April 22
Vodacom South Africa - April 22
Hutchison 3G UK - April 22
Belgium - May 4
Turkey - May 4
T-Mobile Poland - May 10
T-Mobile Hungary - May 10
T-Mobile Macedonia - May 10
Now, strictly speaking this isn't official but the XDA forums are a pretty reliable source of information.
is anyone got 2.1 for unbranded (white one)in uk? i'm still waiting! i'm using it with three - should i get update for three device or for unbranded one? anyone? please advise
Current date is April 3th and no update is available in the nordic countries - seems story sadly to be just another hoax.
