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." Read More
Sprint has some presents for you, especially if you live in the midwest. For starters, several cities are getting their shiny new LTE networks lit up today including Wichita, KS, Waukegan-Lake County, IL and more (listed below). As an added bonus, the #3 carrier also announced that the Network Vision rollout is beginning in Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles. For those who are unaware, the Network Vision plan provides for significant improvements to the existing 3G infrastructure, in addition to eventual LTE upgrades. Read More
If you're a close follower of tech, you're probably familiar with the LG Intuition, or at least its European brother, the Optimus Vu. The major selling point: a 5", 1024x768 (4:3) display. Sure, the other specs are noteworthy in that they match other high-end phones, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 1GB RAM, Android 4.0, and LTE. But that massively wide screen is undoubtedly going to be the talking point. Read More

If you have a Galaxy Note on T-Mobile, you're probably worried about things like device updates, considering T-Mo basically ditched it after only a couple weeks of availability. Worry not, because the CyanogenMod team is here to save the day: just one week after the custom Jelly Bean build showed up for the AT&T and International versions of the Note, CM10 Nightlies are now available for T-Mo's variant of the device.

If you walk into AT&T right now to buy the HTC One X and sign a new agreement, you'll not only be overrun by people trying to get the new iPhone, but pay $100 for it. Here's a better idea: stay home, head over to Amazon Wireless, and get the same phone for just $20 (if you're opening a new AT&T account). You'll avoid the crowd, standing in line, and having to listen to some salesman tell you to buy some other phone that's not nearly as good. Read More
Today's the day, Galaxy Nexus owners - Verizon just updated its support documents to reflect the long-awaited Jelly Bean update. From what we're hearing, the OTA is already rolling out, so you should be able to pull it down right now. You'll just need to jump on Wi-Fi and head into Settings > About phone > System update.

Remember a few months ago when LG showed off its new Optimus L series, with three new Android-powered smartphones across several price points? Yeah, neither do we. But in any case, the biggest and relatively baddest of those phones will be available on Sprint subsidiary Boost Mobile sometime in the near future, under the new alias of the LG Venice. EV Leaks got a hold of an official photo of the device - we've only got their word that it's coming to Boost, but they're usually spot-on with this sort of thing. Read More
MetroPCS just announced a new 4G smartphone from ZTE for its ever-expanding 4G LTE network. Dubbed the Anthem, this new handset offers mid-range specs under a 4.3" 480x800 display, including a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and Android 2.3. Past that, the pay-as-you-go carrier was overly-scant on details, but we'll assume it's packing 1GB of RAM and some sort of camera (5MP, maybe?).
So far as looks are concerned, it's not the prettiest thing we've ever seen, but it's hard to complain for around $220 (after MiR) with no contractual agreement. Read More
We heard that the ZTE Warp Sequent was on its way to Boost Mobile a couple of weeks ago, and sure enough, it's now available to buy for $199.99.
The 4.3-inch phone packs a qHD display, and is powered by a 1.4GHz CPU with 768MB RAM. You'll be able to take photos and make video calls using the 1.3MP front facing camera, whilst the rear shooter allows you to capture 5MP shots. Read More
