HTC Hero, Samsung Moment to get Android 2.1 AndroidCentral is reporting that the Sprint models of the Samsung Moment and the HTC Hero will be receiving Android 2.1 in the near future, citing an internal Sprint memo.
Reads the memo:

What you need to know:

-With all the anticipation of Nexus One joining the Sprint Android family of great devices, customers with the HTC HeroTM and the Samsung MomentTM with GoogleTM may wonder about the Android 2.1 platform that supports Nexus One.

What you need to do:

-We know that technology has enabled greater productivity and spontaneity in our lives,and because of this we have become very dependent on staying connected. Customers don't only expect more from their wireless phones -- they demand it.


-Let your customers know we are actively working on having the Android 2.1 platform available to our Hero and Moment customers over the coming weeks.

-Look for more information coming in April about Android 2.1 platform for Hero and Moment.


And don't forget:

-The HTC HeroTM and the Samsung MomentTM with GoogleTM are superior devices.

-Sprint is the only national U.S. carrier to offer HTC Hero, and it picked up top honors as the Best Mobile Handset at the 2010 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

-About.com readers have nominated HTC Hero as their favorite smartphone for the 2010 Reader's Choice Awards.

All the info I have read since last November has stated that these 2 devices will get the upgrade sometime in the first half of 2010, so get your info right.

where were you when the update was apparently being released before the end of 2009.

its not till january or february that sprint said it would be the first half of 2010. i had my phone since october and have been all over the release of 2.1 for this phone so im sure my info is sufficiently accurate.

thanks tho.
