Hero to Sprint, Snap for Alltel according to HTC support site

Hero to Sprint, Snap for Alltel according to HTC support site
According to a couple of HTC support web pages, the Android powered Hero appears headed toward Sprint and the QWERTY keyboard enabled Snap is on its way to Alltel. First, the HTC Hero is the best Android device released to date, according to our just released review of the handset. It is the first Android phone that offers flash support on its browser and comes equipped with a capacitive 3.2 inch display, a 3.5mm audio jack (placed on the phone at a strange angle) and the exciting new Sense UI.  Check out our review of the Hero to see what the screaming is all about. As for this phone coming to the U.S. via Sprint, late last month we reported that some leaked spy shots show an October 11th launch date for a CDMA version of the Hero for the pin-dropping network. For those still part of the Alltel network with a yearning for the HTC Snap, there is also a HTC support page that shows a branded version of that device for the carrier.

Ahhh this couldn't happen soon enough!!! Hopefully by the time of release, some improvements will have been made to the performance of the htc hero. As for now all the htc hero does is LAG. This shouldn't be too hard to ask for, seeing how the gsm htc touch diamond lagged tremendously, but by the time it came to sprint, the sprint cdma version was much more refined.

Alltel is no more. They changed the Alltel boards in my city to Verizon Wireless.

I mean, the rest of us could always save up and get the US version 3G Hero unlocked when it actually gets here, right? That's pretty much what I'm guess my only option is going to be, seeing how at&t wants to take it's sweet time realising anything as good =/

If I'm not mistaken every HTC phone that has gone to Sprint has also gone to Verizon. I see no reason for this to be any different. It'll be on Verizon guaranteed.

I think Verizon and HTC have a new relationship as seen with the Snap/Ozone fuck release on both carriers
