HTC Hero passes FCC tests, slated for AT&T?

The HTC Hero made it through the FCC process with some listed standards that suggest AT&T may be the carrier who offers the device in the United States. The FCC approved the Hero to run on 850/1900Mhz bands, which happens to be the frequency used by AT&T. Could AT&T get its first Android phone this year?

HTC’s earliest statement that it was bringing a “distinct” version to North America signaled that it had yet to determine an American company to distribute the Hero. Original rumors suggested that Sprint was testing the Hero to see if it would be the U.S. carrier to offer the phone. This news obviously throws a wrench in that suggestion.

Who will be the lucky company to offer the Hero? Will there be more than one company with different versions?
