The HTC Hero was one of the most popular Android-based smartphones of 2009 and now Orange and T-Mobile will be bringing an official update to bring the platform up to 2.1 on April 16th.
Various other European nations will benefit from the update earlier in the month, with the roll-out beginning on April 2nd.
However, if you have your HTC Hero on a 3 contract then you will have to hold on until April 22nd.
The HTC Legend is also on the way and its arrival with Android 2.1 onboard has made some people very excited.
Even so, if the HTC Hero is to get the same platform at a much lower price point, then it could easily tempt consumers to pick up the older mobile over the latest arrival.
The schedule for the HTC Hero Android 2.1 roll-out was first published on the XDA Developers forum.
