I truly feel for you, Luca. You couldn't put it better re- the situation from the consumers pointof view.
We all getting frustated by HTC attitude, by not giving update from this beta version of androids! I bought my Hero USD 500 but who cares? I'll wait another 2 months if there's no news I'll buy Legend.
Sense UI won, but with plenty of hard feeling for HTC!
Good day does anyone of u knows how to cutomize the message alert tone... i want to use the alert tone that i used with my tp2. Is there a way for me to transfer files from my sd card to my phone memory, tnx
i dont really understand how HTC came with the legend same phone model but better spec. and with the firmware 2.1 as standard meanwhile keep promising for the update of the hero..
I bought my hero at the end of 2009 being reassured by the seller (three.co.uk) and in various press articles that the android OS 2.1 was to be released imminently and would open up the market to newer and even better apps. But after a few weeks I noted that the update was needed to get the phone workable; eg, my desktop win pc boots in less time than the htc phone :(
I've been watching all the rumours fly around about late march, april 16th, april 26th, early may and now June... JUNE release date (the google release was in late october and nexus google-HTC phone with android 2.1 was in early january).
Meanwhile on the HTC site there are NO clues as to what is happening or what might happen. It's still a good phone but I was very much hoping to use a few of the features of 2.1 and I couldn't be LESS impressed by HTC's attitude to keeping owners NOT informed about what's going on.
I have *NO* confidence in a June release and am beginning to suspect that HTC are allowing these constant rumours to circulate to keep people buying heros whilst never actually bothering to update them at all. Why should they, with so many new phones to sell coming on line?
In the end, this is the first, last and only HTC phone I purchased. no more HTC for me.
or yes.... if you sell me it for £100, it does not worth more money...

Hero Android 2.1 update delayed (again) until JUNE!
Love the phone. But text input takes some getting used to. But WHY can't I set up my e-mail account?My old HTC Tytn was so easy, all I get when I follow the instruction is a message telling me the server is not responding- which I find hard to believe is happening ALL the time with Microsoft.
I have tried in many locations to setup so I know the signal is not an issue. Any ideas anyone please?
Which OS is better between Windows Mobile & Android? I desire for an expert opinion mentioning the pros & cons of the both OS. Is there anybody who can help me giving his/her valuable opinion?
