Google Maps was updated to version 4.60  last week, and you may not have noticed it on the surface, but contained inside were some interesting resources providing an early glimpse at the style direction Gingerbread is set to take.

Sprint HTC Hero Android 2.1
Last Updated: April 21st, 2010

Us, Hero owners, have been waiting for an OS upgrade for a loooooong time, since the phone got released last October with Android 1.5.
