HTC Hero & Samsung Moment Getting Andriod 2.0 Update Sprint Brings Android Eclair to Their Hero & Moment Smartphones

In a short Twitter message posted by the company yesterday, Sprint have
officially announced that their HTC Hero and the
Samsung Moment smartphones are being upgraded (from Android 1.5) to
run Android 2.0 Eclair. Although the release date is yet to be
determined, the US carriers is hinting that as late as June, their
customers will get access to the whole set of new functionalities coming
with the update.
The sad part is that the news comes just as Verizon pushes out the
Android 2.0.1 upgrade for their Motorola Droid (the first phone to run
the software) and by the looks of it, Sprint is going to be some eight
months late in offering such a smartphone to their customers.
On top of that, Sprint is supposedly worried about a potential
fragmentation issues that experts have discovered to be causing problems
with the Android platform. The reason stands behind the fact that
applications built for Android 1.5 or 1.6 may not be compatible with
Android 2.0 Eclair, which would put developers off from coming up with
new applications.
Nonetheless, the fact that Sprint's HTC Hero and the new Samsung Moment
will be running Android 2.0 is good news.
