HTC Hero new release date

We are all tired of waiting for Android 2.1 to finally officially land on the HTC Hero, or even get a definite day announced by anyone official.

Speculations after speculations that started back in November kept predicting new dates after dates for an upgrade, starting from January to pretty much every week of April, and now May.

In light of these "rumors", we found a new rumor of that we wanted to share, with smiles on our faces.

Incredible is regularly priced at $299 with a $100 mail-in rebate but if you head over to your local Best Buy store and preorder it, you will only have to pay $199 (+tax) out of pocket, $50 of which is due at the time of your visit.

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

Introduction

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.

At first, we were hoping for 1.6, then 2.0, and finally 2.1 was promised ("Totally for real this time, yo" - said Sprint and HTC but we saw nothing).

Other phones kept getting 2.1 upgrades but our favorite Hero saw only promises after promises with release dates pushed further and further back.

Sprint  HTC Hero and Samsung Moment Android 2.1 in May
Last Updated: July 31st, 2011

An internal Sprint memo has surfaced showing a new early May release date for both HTC Hero and Samsung Moment Android phones, jonathan76888 on AndroidForums found out.

The memo looks quite legitimate and this time actually lists 2.1 as the update target, compared to the one from 3 weeks ago that referenced a "maintenance release" and promised an April 9th date (followed by rumors of April 16th, all false).

The wait is almost over, guys.

CyanogenMod ROM

A few moments ago, Cyanogen announced version 5.0.6 of his ROM for HTC Nexus One and Motorola Droid. This release contains a whole plethora of bug fixes and enhancements for the Nexus One and a few for the Droid.

The release follows the drama with Cyanogen and the Ultimate Droid ROM creator The BlackDroid, which you can read about here and here, which explains the note at the bottom of Cyanogen's announcement that reads

"PS: Expect Ultimate Droid v11 soon!

Verizon Droid page

Constant refreshing has finally paid off and the Verizon's official Incredible page is finally live.

Remember the staging site that was leaked yesterday and then quickly password protected? Well, Verizon did a bit more work on it to make it snazzy, added a pre-order date of April 19th, and released it into the wild. Check it out yourself.

The page is live following the official Incredible press release that we posted earlier today.

Farewell rumors, hello solid information! Verizon has just put out a press release nailing down some details on the HTC Droid Incredible. We're all well acquainted with the stats by now, but we were unaware of the potential release date or price.

Well, on April 29th, for a cool $199 (After a $100 mail-in rebate) on a two year contract you can head down to your local Verizon store to get yourself some Snapdragon-powered, HTC Sense driven, Droidy goodness!

Verizon just posted a semi-official confirmation of the long awaited HTC Droid Incredible coming to their network on April 29th.

The announcement is semi-official because it was posted to their staging site, which is now password protected. A staging server is normally used for testing pages that are going to production but it didn't make it anywhere official yet, so things are still subject to change.

As a refresher, HTC Incredible's specs, leaked a few days ago, are as follows:

  • 1GHz Snapdragon CPU
  • 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • 8MP camera with autofocus
  • 8GB internal storage
  • 512MB ROM and 512MB RAM
  • 3.7" WVGA 480×800 px OLED touch screen
  • Sense UI
  • 312 min talk time / 149 hours standby time
  • 4.59oz
  • Android 2.1
  • CDMA obviously – it’s Verizon
