Could the HTC Hero Android 2.1 update be finally nearing release? A new update for the smartphone has been announced on the HTC support page, described as a “Firmware over-the-air (FOTA) client update & YouTube player Update”; we’ve previously seen the Android 2.1 firmware for the Hero distributed in a two-stage process, with the handsets first prepared for the new version with an initial, smaller update, before the larger upgrade is distributed.
That seems to be happening for Hero handsets in Europe; HTC have previously said are on track for a June 2010 release for the new firmware, having already released it in Thailand. Anybody out there with a Hero that’s been offered this update OTA yet?[via Twitter]
