HTC prepping better, stronger firmware for Hero

Chris Ziegler

The Hero might not pack a 1GHz Snapdragon or anything awesome like that, but that's no excuse for it to lag its older cousins in day-to-day use. Sure, you've got Sense on there -- but HTC's got to keep things snappy, particularly in light of how well TouchFLO 3D performs on the newest batch of devices. Fortunately, we've followed up with HTC in light of a recent SlashGear report that there's fresh firmware on the way, and indeed, it's been confirmed -- details on the exact contents are sketchy at best, but we're cautiously heartened by the "performance" part of the "performance improvements and bug fixes" statement we've received. We'll see just how much better it gets.
