HTC confirms Hero update

Phone maker HTC will soon release an update for its Android-powered Hero handset, says a Tuesday SlashGear report, which owners will be able to download via the company's support site. Exactly what the update will bring remains unknown, but faster performance is expected, since many owners are complaining of slowdowns in the Sense UI.

"HTC will be providing a software update for the HTC Hero," HTC said in a statement,"which will be available via the HTC website in the coming weeks."

A customer support representative then went on to say that a partial update will be available in 10 days, while a major release is due in mid September, complete with local language support. The updates are also expected to bring with them various bug fixes and minor changes.
