Android update

You guys may want to take this with a grain of salt, but the other day when talking to my (Cellular south) Rep. I asked them if we were going to get an android update anytime soon. To which she replied should be sometime the end of this month. I know most of these reps are the last to know this stuff, but just to let anyone know who has Cellular South to look out for it. I hope.

Engadget said:
We've known for ages that HTC's been working on yanking its custom-skinned Hero off of Cupcake's rusty frame, but so far, the only way to drop Android 2.0 or 2.1 on your phone has been to cheat, root, and load a custom or leaked ROM in place of the official first-party firmware. If you're too straightedge for that, though, keep the faith -- your binary isn't too far off. PR released today indicates that we can expect the Hero to get an Android 2.1 update with Sense in "mid March" according to HTC's Benelux team, and it'll feature a new Friend Stream widget that aggregates user updates across services (presumably a nod to Blur), tweaked Exchange support, and a handful of other goodies. This isn't necessarily indicative of when Hero versions in other regions (Sprint's version, for instance) will pick it up, but it's a solid start.

Hope it's true..

I'm hoping for it too... not to mention, the cool integrated 'Friend's Stream' addon/update to People that HTC has for 2.0+ sounds great

Sprint is way behind, as usual.

Actually Sprint got the new blackberry update before Verizon did. I think they are slowly getting better at being in line with everyone else. But considering no hero has it at this point I fail to see how they are behind anyone.

So if HTC Desire & Legend are releasing April 12th..

Doesn't that mean we'll get Android 2.1 with new Sense update for Hero sometime around that date, if not on that date since these two phones have HTC Sense and run 2.1? Just a thought..

It would make sense. I see your thouhgt process. But usually things never work out that easy. So really I don't think it means a thing, just cuz companies don't always logically do things like that.

User fr33k0z0id over at XDA posted the following:

"I work in ATS for Sprint, and according to information I have received, the official release date for the 2.1 update is set for 3/26. So there you go, take it or leave it."

YAY, sounds good. At least its before I graduate. Only 20 more days, and now that I start classes again, I'll have something to take my mind off my phone. My gf was starting to get jealous.
