Is Our Sprint Hero getting the new update to Android 2.1?


Nov 2, 2009
Okay, so i've been reading about the new Update and just today i seen that the HTC Hero is getting the update by Christmas
HTC Hero: Official Android 2.1 update by Christmas
And in different sites they say that since this is a GSM phone that CDMA phones cannot get the new update, but in other sites they say that in 1.6 they encoded CDMA into it or something, so my questions are:
1)Will the Sprint Hero get the 2.1 update?
2)And if not, then why?
