Whilst we twiddle our fingers waiting for the Android 2.1 firmware , HTC are (hopefully) hard at work behind the scenes in making this a fully featured update. Part of the delay is caused by HTC customising the Sense user interface and integrating it with the new Android 2.1 firmware.
There may be the possibility that this new Sense interface will include multi-touch functionality within the HTC Hero’s homescreens. A video has emerged that shows that pinching the various homescreen panes allows you to zoom out to see all of the panes at a glance. It’s unclear if this will be in the official update or whether it’s some handiwork from a talented hacker. Hopefully, we’ll have more details at next weeks MWC show in Barcelona.
