Boost Mobile has just announced yet another option to its Android-powered entourage: the LG Venice. The 4.3" Venice is touted as an "ultra-thin" and light handset, and at only one-third of an inch thick with a weight of 4.41 oz, it affirms that claim.

The phone ships with fairly average specs: 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP rear shooter, VGA front camera, and Android 4.0. The device will go on sale beginning October 10th for a modest $219 and is "paired with Boost Mobile's no-contract $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan."

If affordable phones, unlimited 4G LTE data, and no contracts are all things that appeal to you, then today's announcement from MetroPCS may be of interest.

For starters, the pay-as-you-go company announced the LG Motion, a new mid-range device that will run on its 4G LTE network. It didn't give a lot in way of specs, but the device features a 3.5" display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and Android 4.0 for $150.

Go big or go home. That must be Toshiba's new mantra where tablets are concerned, as it just announced a trio of Ice Cream Sandwich-packin', Tegra 3-powered additions to its Excite tablet line: a 7.7-inch, 10.1-inch, and 13.3-inch model.

The 7.7-inch model, appropriately named the Excite 7.7, sports a 1280x800 AMOLED display, the quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and Ice Cream Sandwich. At just 0.3-inches thick and 13.4 ounces, the Excite 7.7 is a powerhouse in a tiny package.

Looks like Sprint's first LTE handset, the LG Viper, will be available for pre-order from Sprint beginning on April 12th for a reasonable $99 after $50 mail-in-rebate, and will be available in all channels "later this month."

LG-X3

The Viper was originally announced alongside the Galaxy Nexus earlier this year at CES as one of Sprint's premier LTE devices and is packing some reasonable specs for the price:

  • 4-Inch 480x800 display
  • 1.2Ghz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 5MP rear shooter, VGA front-facing camera
  • 4GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • NFC and Google Wallet
  • Android 2.3 (will likely be updated to Android 4.0)

Last we heard, the Viper was said to be released on April 15th, but that seems unlikely with pre-orders beginning on April 12th.

By most accounts, the Motorola DROID RAZR is an excellent phone, though battery life is questionable. Which is exactly what makes the RAZR MAXX such a great phone: at 9mm, it's still thin, but packs a battery with 85% more capacity (1780 vs 3300mAh). At the moment, the RAZR MAXX isn't sold in Europe and Middle East, but the company has just announced that will change sometime in May.

A quick refresher of the specs:

  • Android 2.3.6 (Android 4.0 update reportedly coming tomorrow)
  • 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP4430 CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage, 16GB microSD card in the box (32GB of storage total)
  • 4.3" Super AMOLED qHD display
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • 8.99mm thin, 4.5oz

No word on what specific day it will go on sale, but we're sure the company will release some details closer to then.

Shortly after the announcement from HTC CEO Peter Chou at Mobile World Congress that AT&T would be a launch partner for the new One X, the US's number two carrier let fly a press release confirming the statement. What's there to take from it? Not much.

The primary differentiating features of AT&T's version will be a dual-core Snapdragon S4 (as opposed to quad-core Tegra 3) processor, as well as LTE connectivity.

Mobile World Congress is just around the corner, and it looks like LG is trying to make a splash before the stampede of news and new devices come flowing out during the show. Yesterday they announced three new phones, and today, a fourth: the Optimus 3D Max (or Optimus 3D Cube if you're in Korea).

The spec sheet, while not lackluster, isn't exactly inspired in light of the quad-core Tegra 3 devices we'll see during the show:

Key Specifications:

  • Chipset: 1.2GHz Dual-Core processor (OMAP4430)
  • Display: 4.3-inch 3D WVGA Display with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2
  • Memory: 8GB Internal Storage, 1GB Internal Memory
  • Camera: 5MP Dual-lens
  • OS: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Android 4.0 (ICS) update "shortly after launch"
  • Battery: 1,520 mAh
  • Others: HSPA+ 21Mbps, HDMI connection 2D/3D TV/monitor up to 1080p via MHL,
    DNLA for wireless connection with TV/PC (3D video also supported),
    NFC Full Support, LG Tag+

The phone checks in at 9.6mm thin and 148 grams.

Looks like Moto is getting ready to push out a couple of budget Android-power handsets to various parts of the world (excluding the U.S.). First up is the little brother to the Defy, appropriately named Defy Mini.

The DM offers a lot of the same "life-proof" features as its big brother, including dust protection, a scratch-resistant screen, and protection against water damage, all packed into its tiny 3.2-inch shell. You'll find a 3MP shooter on the back of the Android 2.3 device, a VGA front camera, and it has 1,650mAh batter for up to 10 hours of talk time.

While the entire tech world is abuzz with news of the just-announced Kindle Fire, MetroPCS unveiled the latest smartphone to land on its 4G LTE network: the LG Esteem 4G.

The Esteem is sporting some nice mid-range specs, and looks to be the clear winner if you're considering MetroPCS as your carrier-of-choice:

  • 4.3-inch 480x800 display
  • 1GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP ffc
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Android 2.3

While it's not the most powerful device on the planet, the pricepoint of this device almost makes up for it: $250.
