Even more good news on the Android 2.0 front – it looks like it should soon be available for the HTC Hero. According to TechTree, a statement released by HTC implies the Eclair update will soon be available for the Hero. The HTC statement reads:
"Yes, we are working on an Eclair update for the HTC Hero. Because Eclair is a significantly enhanced release, it will require some time to update Sense for this new version of the Android OS. Please be patient while we work to provide you with a tightly integrated experience like the one you are already enjoying on your Hero."
So it looks like the update should be available sooner rather than later. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we see Google Maps Navigation make the transition as well!
