HTC speaks out on Hero Android 2 update

Out this month, firm insists

High performance access to file storage

Still awaiting the promised Android 2 update for your HTC Hero smartphone? Here's what HTC has to say about it:

“Android Éclair update for HTC Hero will be released by the end of June.

"The upgrade will come in two parts, the first of which will roll out from this week and will be detected when the Hero next automatically checks for software updates.

"The second part of the update will follow towards the end of the month. As the second part of the upgrade will wipe all data on the handset, Hero users should ensure any important data has been backed up before proceeding with the installation.

Due to the size of the update, wherever possible, we would advise using a Wi-Fi connection for this download to avoid additional data charges.”

Originally expected in February this year, the upgrade was subsequently put back a month. It didn't show up in March, and in April HTC said the release really would make an appearance, in June.

HTC got European Hero owners hopes up by launching the long awaited update for the smartphone earlier this month... but only in Taiwan. ®
