These two have been eying each other from opposite ends of the room for quite some time now, but at long last, we're seeing the first semi-official word that HTC's Hero is indeed coming to the Now Network. Planted over in the Android section of Sprint's own Developer site, we're greeted with this statement:
"Announcing the HTC Hero, which will be the first Android device running on the Sprint network."
The brief post (copied in full after the break) goes on to inform readers that the Sprint developer program will deploy an Android development section by September's close, and there's even a direct link to begin downloading the Android 1.5 SDK immediately. Of course, this isn't as good as a carefully worded press release from the bowels of Overland Park, but it's certainly enough to whet our appetites. C'mon Sprint -- out with the price and release date, pronto!
