Sprint HTC Hero Android 2.1 Update, Release Date Delayed AGAIN

May 6, 2010, By Alex Ion

Sprint is playing with their HTC Hero customers and if you’re one of them we understand your frustration. Expected to kick in tomorrow (according to a Best Buy leak) the release date for the Android 2.1 update for the HTC Hero has been postponed, once again and again and again

That’s according to a Sprint admin who commented on the matter on the official forums. Apparently the thread that detailed the Best Buy leak has been closed down with the following message: “Closing this thread because I don’t want folks to think that 2.1 is coming out on the 7th.” There you have it folks, Sprint is not going to roll out the upgrade this Friday.

We’re not sure if it’s that hard to bring the Android 2.1 upgrade to the Hero or why on Earth it’s taking them so long, but we know that Sprint is doing a great job in disappointing some of their customers. We’re really anxious to the see the HTC EVO 4G in action, but if it’s going to experience the same issues as the Hero does today, they’re in big trouble.

How about it Sprint? When will Android 2.1 come to the Hero? People REALLY want it …
