PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's no surprise that HTC is working very hard on increasing its brand awareness, preferring to market phones as being HTC devices instead of carrier-branded ones that do not carry any HTC branding at all. This strategy is paying off, and today must've been very nice for them: they held an Apple-style product announcement in London, attended by media from all over the world. The news: two new phones, and an improved Sense experience which includes a web presence where you can remotely manage your HTC devices.

There is an official 2.1 ROM out, it's not a WWE ROM but works perfectly well. I think I got it from the xda forums.

The Hero as much as I hate to say it was old news when I got it. It's got another 12 months in it at least but Android 2.1 is the limit for Hero hardware.

Actually the Hero already got a 2.2 hack rom crossported from the cyanogen side. The ram is enough to run 2.2 decently, I personally think the real end of life will be with 3.0 when lots of graphical stuff is moved into 3d. The hero simply has lousy 3d.
There definitely was no technical reason not to give the Hero Froyo (unlike the G1)
