"With Google" Branding - Sprint Please Respond

Please explain. Some people report getting Sprint Hero's with a "With Google" branding on the back of the phone, just as seen in the videos on the Sprint site.

Are there two versions of the Sprint Hero out there? One branded and one not branded?

If there are, why? What is the difference?

Is there any truth to the Rev 0 v.s. Rev A stories out there relating to this?

Thank you.

Hmm I thought making a specific thread about this would centralize the Rev 0 Rev A questions. Guess not.

Please search through the top list first when posting questions.  These have both been answered in the posts listed on the first page of this forum.

Answers:

There is no difference in internal hardware or software on any of the phones, regardless of what the packaging looks like.  The first 50,000 phones were made without the "google" on the back, the newer ones have google on the back.  The Rev A or Rev 0 or 1xRTT depends on what signal you are currently receiving at the time you check that page in settings.

I too was a little surprised that I was not receiving RevA at my house, but have seen it change as I travel around.

If you didn't notice my question was more so about the branding than the rev versions, but because it sounds related I tossed it in here.

I have seen a lot of Heros. I have a beta unit, and it does not say "With Google" anywhere on the device. The purchase units I have seen also do not say "With Google". I do not know if there are multiple batches, but from what I have seen thus far, no "With Google" anywhere on the device.

I personally don't think that's true. Obviously for some phones to have a "static" EvDO Rev. 0 label on them, there has to be something different with the software on them that caused this.
