HTC Hero Owners On Sprint Awarded With Android 2.1 "Eclair" Update

Sprint has gifted its HTC Hero owners the long-awaited Android 2.1 update, seven months after the first screenshots of a Hero running the faster, snazzier version showed up.

It's being rolled out as we speak, giving full embellishments to the HTC Sense interface, voice recognition, a refreshed App Market, optimized virtual keyboard, improved Google Maps and Microsoft Exchange support—amongst other tidy smaller features. [Sprint via Electronista]
