This news makes for great headlines (and a raft of angry users) but pretty poor journalism, because Sprint has never once officially delayed that update."
Oh I've read this one earlier and assuming it's supposed to be an update to the stories that a variety of websites have posted about in the past and today. From what I've read many of the gripes come from either A) It was never on the two phones [Hero and Moment] or B) It has been slated as Q1 and just never came about. Not being a full techy I wouldn't know the full benefits that 2.1 gives to 1.5, moving up from a Samsung Rant to a HTC Hero was the biggest move of a phone I've ever made anyway.
Had to search again for it, but I believe this was the last forum post I read about 2.1 before I decided to just play the wait and see card. [ http://community.htc.com/na... Still not to sure what to think about the overall performance.
