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]
