Sprint Clarifies: “We Meant Android 2.1 for Hero and Moment”

sprint_tweetIf you are an HTC Hero or Samsung Moment owner, you can now stop worrying about the Nexus One, as you’ll also be enjoying the latest and greatest of Android in the very near future.  That is if you count the next six months as “near future”.  Similar to how the news was broken last week,  Sprint and HTC both tweeted announcements today regarding  Android updates to the Hero and Samsung Moment.  Both phones are going to jump from 1.5 directly to Android 2.1 as opposed to 2.0 as originally announced.

Slight clarification on Android OS updates for the HTC Hero & Samsung Moment. Will be updating straight to Android 2.1, not 2.0, in 1H2010. – Sprint via twitter

Anybody notice the clarification from @sprint? Hero on Sprint will not be getting 2.0…it will get 2.1 :). – HTC via twitter
