HTC delays Android 2.1 update for HTC Hero

Not long ago eMagi reported that HTC will be pushing out the official Android 2.1 firmware upgrade to their HTC Hero in April. Well that is no longer the case as an official statement below explains the situation.

“HTC will be providing a free update to Éclair for European HTC Hero variants. Starting in June, anyone owning an HTC Hero will receive an initial preparatory update, shortly followed by the full Éclair update.

“For the full update, we would recommend using a free Wi-Fi hotspot or an unlimited data plan, otherwise standard data charges may apply.”

Bad news for HTC Hero owners but at least they have an official confirmation that its coming. Not much can be said for Magic MyTouch3G users though with Google mentioning that it will get Android 2.0 but precious little since…
