Sprint’s skipping Android 2.0 and giving the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment 2.1

It seems that Sprint is doing a little change up from the earlier message about the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment getting 2.0 in the first half of 2010. But they are backtracking in a nice way, and instead of going to 2.0, they are going directly to 2.1. And still keeping that same, first half of 2010 timeframe.

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.

Sounds pretty good, now if we could just narrow down a time frame. Not trying to be impatient, but the first half of the year may end up being a long time if they push this to the end.
