If you're a Sprint user who laments the lack of Android love coming from your carrier, today is a very good day for you. PhoneNews.com just received information from some mysterious 'sources' that confirms the HTC Hero is currently undergoing internal testing. The new smartphone is supposedly due for release with Sprint near the end of 2009.
There's also a rumor, started again by PhoneNews.com, that Samsung is currently testing an CDMA/WiiMax smartphone that runs on Android. We know that Sprint has confirmed their plans to release a tri-mode CDMA/WiiMax smartphone by 2010. That's not quite confirmation of the rumor, but does lend it some validity.

Take this news with a grain of salt, Android fans. Neither the Sprint Hero release or the new Samsung smartphone have been independently confirmed. Right now all we've got are idle hopes that a 4G Android mobile is on the way.
