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.
