TELUS Rolls Out Android 2.1 Update For HTC Hero; 2.2 Update For Desire

Canadian network operator TELUS has started rolling out firmware updates for two of its handsets the HTC Hero and the Desire. The Hero finally gets the long awaited update to Android 2.1 a.k.a Éclair, while the Desire gets the Android 2.2 (Froyo) update. The Android 2.1 update for the Hero will bring with it Voice dialling and Google turn-by-turn Navigation and a lot more Éclair goodies. Hero owners on the TELUS network can download the Android 2.1 ROM directly from HTC.


With the Android 2.2 update, the Desire gets support for Flash 10.1 and speech-to-text. Along with this, it also gets support for Mobile hotspot feature and a smoother system and web browser performance. Since this update is an OTA (Over-The-Air) one, Desire needs to wait patiently until the update is pushed to their handset.
