The CDMA HTC Hero (sold in the US via Sprint) has already received its Android 2.1 update, and now it’s time for the GSM version of the smartphone (introduced almost a year ago) to get rid of Android 1.6, too.
HTC has officially announced that, starting today, Hero owners in Taiwan will receive Android 2.1 update notifications over the air.
Hopefully, Android 2.1 will reach Hero owners in other Asian and European markets soon.
Since the Hero was launched in 2009, it will probably not be updated to Android 2.2 Froyo (like the Desire), but Android 2.1 should still make users happy. After all, some 1.6 handsets won’t be updated at all.
