HTC posts Android 2.1 update for Hero phone

Finally...

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

HTC has posted the long-awaited - and much promised - Android 2.1 update for its Hero smartphone.

HTC Hero Android 2.1 update

At least until Android 2.2 becomes ready for primetime.

How long will it take HTC to release an update for that, we wonder? The Hero's Android 2 update was first promised for February.

In the meantime, there's 2.1 - which also works on Orange-tied Heroes, online forum posters have claimed.
