Android 2.1, not 2.0, due at Sprint Hero, Moment

Wireless provider Sprint has Wireless provider Sprint in a Twitter update has informed followers that its HTC Hero and Samsung Moment handsets will skip over Android 2.0 in favor of Android 2.1. The provider says the update will come during the first half of next year, and is in contrast to an earlier report that had Sprint updating the handsets with the Android 2.0 OS in the new year. Both handsets currently run on Android 1.5.

Android 2.1 should bring with it animated backgrounds, as well as what is being called "3D elements" in the pull-out app tray. It will also have more home screens and a grid view of the pages not unlike the card view webOS uses in either the Palm Pre and Pixi.

The HTC Hero was reported earlier to skip over Android 2.0 entirely as well.
