Is the renaissance of Sprint already in motion? We’ve already had the successful launch of the Palm Pre, will we follow that effort up with a Sprint Android launch?

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse, infamous for saying Android wasn’t ready yet, is now changing his tune believing that Android 1.5 is finally ready for prime time. To show his newly found faith in Android, he confirmed that Sprint will launch at least one Android phone this year.

Which Android phone will launch on Sprint? Earlier reports had pegged Sprint to be the carrier for the HTC Hero and we definitely know that the HTC Hero with the Sense UI can withstand the bright lights of prime time.

So, Sprint HTC Hero anyone?
