HTC Hero Update Petition, Have You Signed?
If you own the HTC Hero smartphone you are no doubt aware of the lack of updating the operating system by HTC. The HTC Hero was promised Android 2.1 OS way back at the beginning of the year, but the Taiwan based company still hasn’t made good that obligation.
Well according to Ionut Arghire over at Softpedia, HTC Hero owners can now sign a petition showing that they are unhappy with the constant delays with Android 2.1 coming to the device which has now been pushed back from March to June.
HTC Hero owners can sign the petition by way of downloading the HTC HERO 2.1 Update Petition application from the Android Market which enables HTC Hero users to show their interest in the release of the update and hopefully show HTC they need to something about the situation fast.
The HTC Hero Update Petition is described on the Android Market as…“Are you tired of HTC promising us time and time again our much needed Eclair update? Even when we get updated we still won’t be at the latest version! Sign this petition and hopefully we will get the message to HTC to stop giving out false release dates! Sign by downloading and then leaving a comment on the market!”
It’s been virtually a year since the HTC Hero came out to play and hasn’t seen a software update yet as HTC stated they will skip over Android 1.6 and release Android 2.0 with Android 2.1 promised early this year as soon as it made it into the wild.
However I do have to say at this point, will the HTC Hero Update Petition app actually force HTC to get their fingers out and deliver Android 2.1 as soon as possible? Personally I doubt it as they will release only when they are ready to do so.
