HTC Hero gets 2.1 update in India

There is a thing or two other companies could learn about how to update a mobile device.HTC did a wonderful job of updating the HTC hero. First you get a small update which allows you to download firmware over the air. Then few days later they sent the 2.1 android update.I thought it would be like any other updates, it will completely reset my device. So i backed up everything on my phone that i wanted to my sd card using astro file explorer.HTC update didn't reset anything. All my apps, settings, contacts, calendar were there.But it was disappointing that not all the features are available.No speech to text - this was one of the features I wantedNo live wallpaperWhat do you get in the 2.1 updateFew new HTC widgets (And the ability to download new htc widgets)To download new widgets go to widgets and look at the first link, it will allow you to download more widgets. try the notes widget its really cool.Improved market place now you can search better and also see screen shots of apps, Before installing them.There is a new navigation app, not yet tried out.You can now see what programs are using your battery etc.Now there is bluetooth file send & receive support. If you want to receive any thing from other mobiles or computers now you can do it through bluetooth. But its useful only for small files like mp3 etc. If you want to get anything bigger on to the device its still better to do it via usb. It took me 22 minutes to get a 150 mb file through bluetooth.There are quite a few small one but they are just normal updates nothing to write home about.That's pretty much it.Pretty sad that not all the features of 2.1 android are ported over to this update. But the way they are updating the firmware for these devices is something special.I think the speech to text has problems with recognizing indian accent and may be that's why they have not added it.The only issue i am facing with this update is wifi is not working on mine. It doesn't show my wifi access point. i have reset the phone. And tried all the suggestions in android forums.But still no luck...
