If you can't wait 'til Sunday for the HTC Hero to officially launch on Sprint (and who can?), you can grab a HTC Hero as early as today at Best Buy! Granted you have to be a Best Buy Reward Zone Member and bring the above coupon (which can be found in our forums) to your local Best Buy in order to get the Hero before everybody else, it's well worth it! (plus it's not that complicated). We suggest you call your local Best Buy to confirm availability.
Another route to get the HTC Hero early would be to order it via Sprint Telesales. Yep, the good ol telephone still works wonders. Though we're not sure when Sprint will ship your Hero, the comfort of knowing that the latest and greatest Android phone is en route is always a plus.
And finally, if you have the patience (bless your heart) you can still wait for Sunday, October 11th to purchase it at any Sprint retailer for $179.99 with new 2-year contract. Good things come to those who wait (like the ability to read our upcoming two-part HTC Hero review today & tomorrow!)
