Happening Now: Sprint Rolling Out OTA Update to Hero

sprint_heroWe’re getting wind from a few of our readers that Sprint is pushing out an update to the HTC Hero.  No, it’s not jumping to Android 2.0 yet!  What the update does entirely, we’re not sure.  Hopefully, the SMS hangups are resolved if anything.  We double-checked the Sprint Community Forums and found there was already a post on the matter.

“Just wanted to say that it’s true. It’s installing on my phone right now. It’s about a 3.5 meg download that goes pretty quick. The install is taking several minutes, however.”

Another thread shows users sharing their experiences and what they are seeing as being changed.

well i noticed 2 thing right away.

1- the clock actually had the right time when it booted

2-camera is more stable with the auto focus

its not as laggy when moving from home screen to an app

Being that this is just starting to trickle out, we’d like to know what you guys are seeing.  Anything else visible from the end-user?  What about you dev-types?  See something special in there?
