A member of the Sprint team took to their official message board to bring everyone up to speed in terms of their Android efforts.Â As you may know, the carrier plans to update both their Samsung Moment as well as their Hero handsets to Android 2.1 at some point in the first half of the year.
A while back we announced our plans to update our Android devices to 2.1 in the first half of 2010. I just wanted to follow up with a quick status. The 2.1 update is currently being tested and things are going very well so far. Weâ€™re still targeting the first half of 2010 and if things continue to go smoothly we should have the update well within that time frame. Iâ€™m sure there will be a lot of questions about procedures and more exact time-frames but for now I wonâ€™t be able to say much more. I just wanted you all to know that things are still on track. – tooner (Sprint Employee)
We’re fans of companies who proactively reach out to their users and potential customers.Â It’s nice to know what they’re working on and how things are progressing.Â It’s that silent, ivory tower approach that turns people off and has them assuming that complaints fall on deaf ears.
