HTC has unveiled new handsets at MWC 2010 and has announced that the long desired Android 2.1 update will be coming to the Hero soon. The Android 2.1 update for the Hero is said to be coming in the February or March period and will include Sense UI update as well.


HTC also unveiled the HD mini, which is a smaller version of the HD2 with a 3.2-inch screen and a 600MHz Snapdragon processor. The device gets the Sense UI and no chance of Windows Phone 7 upgrade. HTC also dropped the Legend with Android 2.1 and a 3.2-inch AMOLED screen.

The Legend looks cool and sports an optical joystick. The HTC Desire also got official, which is the Nexus One in new clothes. The device has Android 2.1, a 3.7-inch AMOLED screen and a 5MP camera. I hope that buyers won't get the same 3G issues that the Nexus One has.
