Jiminy jillikers, Radioactive Man, would you look at that? Sprint has just announced that it will be carrying the HTC Hero on the Sprint Developer Network site:
Announcing the HTC Hero, which will be the first Android device running on the Sprint network.
By the end of September, the Sprint developer program will deploy an Android development section that will highlight some resources, value added services applicable to all android developers. FYI, you start developing now by downloading the Android 1.5 SDK
Register to attend our upcoming 2009 Open Developer Conference, where Sprint and our ecosystem partners including HTC will be talking Android:
– Technical overview sessions on Oct 26
– Android hands on coding labs the evening of Oct 26
Oh, BTW we have some BIG announcements coming by the end of the month that will be of great interest to all android developers…we promise it won’t disappoint.
If you’re into over-analyzing things as much as we are, one could assume it’s still possible that Best Buy will begin taking pre-orders on the 13th of this month with a tentative release date of October 11th, although we have to be honest and say that no one really knows exactly when we will see Sprint release the Hero. Worst case scenario? It’s released just as Santa’s elves begin packing up his sleigh.
