Looks like Sprint and Verizon users have been pushed to the wall with Android 2.1 updates for the Motorola Droid on Verizon, and the HTC Hero and HTC Moment on Sprint being delayed over and over again.
Earlier we had some rumors which suggested that the Android 2.1 update for HTC Hero and Moment was coming on March 26th. A user also shared a voice message left by a Sprint rep which said that March 26th was the date.
Alas, it looks like the Android 2.1 update is not coming today, and is instead going to be released on April 9th according to a leaked document that the Phandroid blog got their hands on.
Please take this with a pinch of salt as Sprint does not look to be too keen on releasing a much awaited updated on one of the best Android based phones they are selling. We’ll keep you updated on further progress in the coming weeks. For the bravehearts who can’t wait till April 9th, there is a cooked up HTC Hero Android 2.1 ROM available right now.
