Android 2.0 Update for HTC Hero Delayed?
Earlier in the year HTC confirmed that an Android 2.0 update was in the works for a February rollout. However, a leaked document from a carrier in Ireland has it that it's been delayed until March. This obviously is bad news for all the Hero users out there.
The delay is due to developing Sence UI to be compatible with the latest version of Android. With the 2.0 delayed, this must also mean that the 2.1 update has also been pushed back. With all the fragmentation going on with Android, its a wonder how anyone can develop anything to work with the platform.
There have been rumors lately that the 2.0 update would be skipped and HTC would directly move to 2.1 but according to our latest data, this doesn't seem to be the case. For now, it looks like we're stuck with 1.6.
