The day that many Sprint customers have been waiting for is finally here: the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. That's not the only new device to hit The Now Network today, either - the LG Viper and LG Optimus Elite also join the ranks of new offerings on Sprint.
Although the Galaxy Nexus pre-order inventory sold out after only three days of availability, it looks like there are plenty to go around now. While the device is going for $200 with a two-year agreement on Sprint's site (and in-stores), Wirefly is currently offering it for $150 for both new and existing customers (with qualifying agreement, of course).
- 4.65-inch 1280x800 Super AMOLED display
- 1.2GHz dual-core TI processor
- 1GB RAM
- 32GB built-in storage
- 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
- 1850mAh battery
- Stock Android 4.0
If you want to get in on Sprint's LTE network as soon as it's available, but aren't into paying $150-$200 for a new device, then the LG Viper is the way to go. At only $99 directly from Sprint the Viper is a steal, as its specs are akin to that of a much more expensive device:
- 4-inch 480x800 display
- 1.2GHz dual-core processor
- 1GB RAM
- 4GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
- 5MP rear shooter, VGA front camera
- Android 2.3 (will be upgraded to Android 4.0)
If you're looking to save even more money, Wirefly is also offering the Viper at a lower price than Sprint: $20 for new accounts and $50 for existing customers.
LG Optimus Elite
Neither the Galaxy Nexus nor the Viper sound good to you? Looking for something more low-end (I can't imagine why that may be, but I guess it could happen)? If yes, then the Optimus Elite is the one for you. It's a super low-end device with specs that really shouldn't impress anyone:
3.5-inch 320x480 display
800MHz single-core processor
4GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
5MP rear shooter
At the current time, the Optimus Elite available exclusively through Sprint's site for $30 after a $50 mail-in-rebate, so you'll have to hit that up if you plan on grabbing this little guy.
