With all of this talk of new HTC handsets running Android 2.1, one may think that HTC is leaving its HTC Hero owners behind. This is not the case according to Slashgear, who says that the Android 2.1 HTC Hero update will land by the end of March and bring with it a Sense UI refresh.
Exactly what this refresh will bring remains unknown for now, although we will not get the full update seen on the HTC Legend handset. Whether we get its new Friend Stream app or pinch-to-zoom homescreen feature remains to be seen. The upgrade is likely to be a downloadable update rather than OTA one.
