Sprint to get Hero, WiMAX

Wireless provider Sprint is reportedly currently testing the HTC Hero before its release at the end of the year, as well as a portable WiMAX device from Samsung which could be the touchscreen Mondi. According to a Thursday PhoneNews leak, the WiMAX device will ship with the Android operating system, just like the HTC Hero, instead of a Windows Mobile OS, like reported earlier.

Rumors of this device coincide with Sprint's own admission earlier in the year that it would be bringing out a number of WiMAX-enabled devices, including a tri-mode CDMA and WiMAX device sometime before 2010. No other specs or pricing are known, though it's likely both would follow Sprint's typical smartphone data and 4G rates.

    does not compute

    Sprint's network is CDMA, while the Hero runs on HSPA (GSM-derived) networks, so it's rather unlikely that Sprint will get this phone. Instead, it would have to be T-Mobile or AT&T in the US, and Rogers or Fido in Canada (but with Telus as a possibility from October onwards when they roll out their new HSPA network).
