HTC’s European headquarters has posted details on their new Android 2.1 OTA for their Hero sold in most of Europe. This OTA is two part process, the first part will roll out this week and on. The second part will come afterwards towards the end of June. Users should backup any important data before installing the second OTA as it will wipe any data on the handset. HTC advises that you should use wifi to download the update because of the size, they recommend this in order to avoid additional data charges. So, it looks like soon every Hero owner (not just the Hero owners in the us) will have ‰clair aka Android 2.1
