Sprint May Get HTC Hero and Samsung WiMax Device

Details are scarce, but PhoneNews sources claim that Sprint is ready to get on the Android bandwagon. Apparently, they are currently testing the HTC Hero and a Samsung WiMax / CDMA device that runs Android.

This is only a rumor of course, but it does back up earlier talk of a tri-mode WiMax / CDMA / WiFi device from Sprint supposedly set to be released between now and 2010. So maybe Android lovers can get their hopes up a little bit to see 4G handsets in the near future. [PhoneNews]
