Some big news for Sprint customers has leaked out today. An anonymous poster on the xda-deveopper forums has produced a piece of paper, presumably a Sprint internal memo, that shows the names and dates of upcoming Sprint smartphones.

The paper first lists the HTC Hero as being set for a October 11 release date, right alongside another Android device called the 'Samsung Q'. I've never heard of the Q before, but Boy Genius seems to think it might be the internal Sprint name for the Galaxy. Also listed on the sheet is the 'BlackBerry Aries', which is described as an 8330 replacement. This has to be the 8530, and it's due out on November 1.

It's impossible to say 100% whether or not this leak is legit, but my gut feeling is 'yes'. If this isn't an internal memo of some sort, it's a really detailed fake. Either someone put a lot of effort into deceiving us (the poster who put this up has been claiming a Sprint Hero launch for months) or this is legit. Whatever the truth is, I guess we'll know in October.
