HTC Hero

Good news for HTC Hero owners in Canada, as the 2.1 (Eclair) update for the TELUS version is now available for download. The Hero is not even available to buy new, but owners who have been devout to their device can rejoice as they can now enjoy a major upgrade. 

Here are some of the improvements:

  • Flash support 4.0
  • Google Maps Navigation
  • Voice-dialer
  • Multi-touch navigation
  • People Group Widgets

If you want the update, you need to go to HTC's website. Sorry, Sprint Hero users, this update does not apply to your device. [HTC via Mobile Syrup]

Android 2.1 update for Telus HTC Hero available now


Correct me if I'm wrong, but does the Sprint Hero not already have 2.1?

Also, congrats to Telus Hero owners. Sorry it had to be so long in coming.

Is there anyway to do this update non OTA? I have been trying to get this on my phone but it doesn't come up and tell me I have a software update's driving me insane!
