HTC Hero with Sense UIHere’s some good news for you folks out there who chose to get the HTC Hero Android phone on Telus. A press release was released by HTC disclosing that an Android 2.1 update with Sense will be available for the Hero by mid-March. Aside from the latest version of Android, this update will also feature a new Friend Stream widget, improved Exchange support, and a bunch of other treats. We’re not too sure though if this announcement applies to all HTC Hero phones across the globe or just particular models released in specific a region.

With that being said, we don’t see any reason why HTC Canada would not to make one available locally especially after the fiasco involving the HTC Magic and Dream Android phones on Rogers.
