Following up on a previous report regarding Sprint’s Android 2.1 updates for the Hero and Moment, more information has surfaced detailing the Hero update and its release timeframe.
According to the latest internal information available, the Sprint Hero update will be rolled out to all stores with technicians and service centers this Froday May 7th along with availability on HTC’s support site. The delay from the original April 30th roll out was attributed to last-minute changes made by HTC which necessitated the delay.
Additionally, because of the nature of the update the device will need to be wiped with all important information being backed up before the update can be applied, as it does not affect information stored on memory cards, only the information stored on the devices internal memory.
There is still no word on the status of the Android 2.1 update for the Samsung Moment, with no mention being made in the latest internal update.
