We just got a heads up that the above image you see just showed up in Best Buy’s internal systems… and you know what that means? Some solid HTC Hero pre-order action happening for Sprint come September 13th. This isn’t confirmed by any means as Best Buy shots aren’t always spot on, but they provide an incredibly good general look at possible releases dates and information. Also, for your reference, the September 13th date looks to be the start of the pre-sale for the HTC Hero on Sprint at Best Buy, not the actual handset release date.

Thanks, to our Best Buy ninja!
