At last. Sprint has made Android 2.1 available to the HTC Hero Android device. Additionally, T-Mobile has made a significant software update available to the HTC HD2. What do these updates offer?HD2 Update
HTC's HD2 runs Windows Mobile 6.5.3. In the time that I've used it, I've notice it to be a bit unstable. In fact, the more you load it up with apps and content, the more bogged down it tends to become. Thankfully, T-Mobile is offering a minor firmware upgrade that irons out some of the bugs.
The update requires users to download the software to a PC and then install via USB. T-Mobile takes pains to mention that the update will completely erase everything on the phone and restore it to factory settings. That means all your settings and personalized stuff will be nixed -- including purchased apps and media. T-Mobile warns users to back up their phone's settings and data to Microsoft's My Phone cloud service and their media to a hard drive or microSD card before performing the update.
The shift from Android 1.5 to Android 2.1 is pretty huge, and HTC Hero owners should be excited about it. The number of new features is staggering. What's annoying is that Sprint isn't offering the update over the air. Instead, users have to download the system software to their computer and install it via USB cable. That annoyance aside, there's a lot to like.
