Now that the Motorola Droid is set to debut on November 6th for $199 that is set in stone after today let’s take another look at that rumor that had HTC phones also getting Google’s new mobile operating system, Android 2.0.

So that means you may want to hold off on getting the Droid, because HTC’s Hero is supposed to be getting the new Android as well.

Engadget has HTC saying this:

Yes, we are working on an Eclair update for the HTC Hero. Because Eclair is a significantly enhanced release, it will require some time to update Sense for this new version of the Android OS. Please be patient while we work to provide you with a tightly integrated experience like the one you are already enjoying on your Hero.

So it is only a matter of time before the update comes out, they just need to port their Sense UI and work out the kinks. It’s as simple as pie.

Will this stop people from getting the Droid?

Probably not, but hey, it could prevent people from immediately making a switch. Or you could pick up a BlackBerry Storm 2 instead.

That’s a thought.
