HTC sets timeframe for Hero Android update

Éclair 'preparatory upgrade' due in June

HTC Hero 2

HTC's anticipated update that will take its Hero smartphone to Android 2.1 will now not appear until June.

Originally expected in February this year, the upgrade was subsequently put back a month. It didn't show up in March.

But this week, HTC released a statement saying that it will provide the update for 2.1 - aka 'Éclair' - for European Heros free of charge.

"Starting in June," it said, "anyone owning an HTC Hero will receive an initial preparatory update, shortly followed by the full Éclair update."

Let's hope 'shortly' is exactly that. ®
