At long last, HTC Hero owners (read our review) walking on the GSM side who have been waiting a long, long time to get an updated firmware will finally be able to do so with news of the Android 2.1 coming via Over The Air (OTA). This has been months in waiting, so those who prefer to take it with a pinch of salt are justified in doing so since the update has been delayed in the past. The software upgrade to Android 2.1 will be made avialable to GSM HTC Hero phone owners that are running on the 2.73.751.13 software build, and once it is complete, you ought to be able to find your smartphone updated to 3.31.751.1, where it is basically HTC’s Android 2.1 build with HTC Sense user interface. Of course, Sprint owners have already gotten their update last month.
