If you didn't know, the HTC Hero is launching on Sprint.

You can't say Sprint isn't trying. Bleeding money and rumors of downfall can't sink a ship when they continue to bust their behinds trying to get past the rough waters. Translation: Sprint now exclusively has two of the most compelling smartphone options on the market. How could we have written them off? They're just getting down to business.

The Palm Pre and HTC Hero--both are magnificent phones in their own right but more specifically, they're the best options on their respective platforms--on one network. We know a HTC Hero on Verizon or AT&T or the Android-friendly T-Mobile would work better for a lot more people (us included) but we absolutely love how Sprint goes and grabs the best phones available.

So the question we have for you guys, how do you feel about the HTC Hero on Sprint? Would it make you switch? Does it make you stay? How is the Sprint network for you? Love it or hate it, let us know in the comments!

As for us, we've never been a Sprint customer (we rock AT&T and T-Mobile at the Android Central HQ) but we're so excited to see the HTC Hero (and its redesign) in the states that we're deeply contemplating a switch.
