    This one isn't a VZW phone, but it is a nice looking device and a really good deal, so we thought we would share this news, in case you wanted to pass it on to friends or family. Sprint just officially launched their LG Viper 4G LTE. You can pre-order the phone now, and it will be available for retail on April 22nd for $99.99 on a new contract after a $50 dollar mail-in rebate. It's really hard not to like this phone as the specs read like a higher end device than the pricing would indicate. Here's a recap:
    • 4-Inch 480x800 display
    • 1.2Ghz dual-core processor
    • 1GB RAM
    • LTE (4G)
    • 5MP rear shooter, VGA front-facing camera
    • 4GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
    • NFC and Google Wallet
    • Android 2.3 (likely updated to Android 4.0 fairly soon)
    That's a pretty budget conscious price for the specs you get. Now, imagine when Amazon and Wirefly start to sell this phone... We could end up seeing this device sell for as low as $60-$80 bucks! What do you guys think of this one?

    Same specs as the Lucid.

    The Lucid along with the Spectrum are two solid albeit unpopular devices from LG.

    At least LG isn't stumbling over itself like MOTO and HTC have been doing lately.
