Best Buy to presell Sprint's HTC Hero starting September 13th

I wonder if we will know the pricing of the Hero in a few weeks? BB will probably sell it outright for $700+, as they like to jack up the price of phones. But it will probably go for less than $200, with a 2 year contract...

A leaked shot of a computer screen in Best Buy's internal system shows that the big box retailer could be soon taking pre orders on Sprint's HTC Hero. According to the picture, it appears that September 13th would be the starting date for taking the orders for the Android powered device. The Hero has HTC's proprietary Sense UI and is the first phone using Google's open source OS to support flash on the browser. As we reported last week when this CDMA version of the Hero visited the FCC, October 11th is Sprint's expected launch date of the handset. Pricing is not known at the moment.

Does anyone wager a guess as to what this means in relation to the actual release date?

Are we still thinking/hoping/praying for Oct. 11th?

Re: Best Buy to presell Sprint's HTC Hero starting September 13th

I haven't checked much into the Hero, but is it GSM capable like the TP2? If not, I don't understand someone would buy the Hero for outright for $700 when it is only for the Sprint network.

Maybe I'm wrong, but wouldn't it be nice to know if Sprint will allow this phone on a Sero plan first? What happens if you put the $50 down on it, then find out that it requires the everything plan?

Sprint told you? Who exactly said that?

I had telesales people telling me the Pre wouldn't require it either and that was a month before it was released. Those people are just guessing until Sprint actually releases the info on it.

cant say her name or position but i trust her, shes a suit for sprint and theres more to the story because im getting a hero and dont have sep but im getting a good deal on the hero whatever the price will be. bottom line is i trust her.i guess you can call sprint and ask but im sure they dont know. i also had a instinct with no sep and they said you couldnt with that piece of junk too.

Re: Best Buy to presell Sprint's HTC Hero starting September 13th

So, granting Sprint will let you put the Hero on a SERO plan, can BestBuy do a 2year upgrade in store on a SERO line or do I have to call and argue with Sprint?
