Hold your horses, it's only Asia that gets the goodies for now, but Europe should be close behind in getting some of those Eclairs. Unfortunately, Android 2.1 is as good as it gets for the now aging Hero but it's nonetheless a top-notch upgrade for owners that have been stuck at Android 1.5 for what now seems as ages.
The first signs of an Eclair update coming to the Hero appeared a few months back but as it turns out it's only now that HTC are finally ready to release the Android v2.1 update for the device.
According to company's support page you can download the update Over-the-Air (preferably on Wi-Fi). HTC didn't mention any other improvements to come along with the new firmware other than the new features inherent to the fresher Android version.
Currently, Android v2.1 update for HTC Hero is only available for the users across Taiwan but it should spread around the globe soon.
