Could the HTC Hero finally be getting its Android 2.1 upgrade?  A new OTA software update has been announced in Taiwan, which promises to take the handset from its core Android 1.5 OS to the same OS 2.1 as on the Desire and Legend.

Of course, that’s just in Taiwan right now, and since it’s an OTA update – and likely localised to their regional device – it’s not much use yet to the rest of us with Hero devices aching for an upgrade.  Still, if one is getting pushed out then it stands to reason HTC may be looking to do the same in other countries where the Hero has been available.
