Three has just released a statement saying that it expects Google to approve the Android 2.1 release for HTC Hero handsets in the next two weeks. This may help to placate the angry HTC Hero owners on 3, some of whom have set up a facebook page demanding the release. The short statement from Three is attached below.
Three has now tested and approved the 2.1 update for HTC Hero and it has been submitted to Google to get the final go-ahead. We’re hoping that they can approve it within the next 2 weeks and then we can start updating Three customers with HTC Hero’s.
