[Whoops] Sprint Apparently Just Announced The World's First LG Phone That Runs TouchWiz

Sprint announced the Optimus F3 this morning, a very boring little phone you probably couldn't care less about, and I don't blame you. What you should care about, though, is what's going on in the official press photos below. Look closely at the one on the left.

Why yes, that is a slightly older version of TouchWiz (Nature UX 1.0, if I'm not mistaken) that this Optimus F3 is running! Sprint has either managed to unearth the world's first LG phone with TouchWiz, or someone done goofed at some point.

CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightlies For Sprint And Verizon Galaxy S4 Now Available [Update: US Cellular]

Verizon and Sprint customers who've laid down their money for the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be happy to know that they no longer have to choose between TouchWiz and nothing. After publishing nightly ROM builds for the Canadian LTE, T-Mobile, and AT&T variants of the S4, America's larger CDMA networks now have their turn. You can pick up the Sprint (jfltespr) and Verizon (jfltevzw) builds at CyanogenMod's download page now.

As always, nightly ROM builds aren't for the faint of heart, especially since both models only have one flashable ROM available at the moment. With CyanogenMod 10.1 reaching the final release candidate stages, it might be prudent for more cautious users to wait for a stable release.

CyanogenMod 10.1: AT&T Galaxy S4 Nightlies Added; International, Sprint, And T-Mobile HTC One Builds Reshuffled [Update: AT&T HTC One]

There's a lot happening in the CyanogenMod world this morning. First and most importantly, the AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 now has official CyanogenMod 10.1 (Android 4.2) support, following the T-Mobile and Canadian versions. According to this Google+ post, supporting the AT&T S4 was simply a matter of patching a previous build. One nightly ROM is available at the time of writing, with more stable releases sure to follow soon.

SPH-L600 Passes Through Bluetooth Certification - Likely The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 For Sprint

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 was announced alongside its smaller sibling, the Mega 5.8, early last month. Given their enormity and relatively middling specifications, we didn't expect to see the monster handsets come stateside. Now, it seems like at least one of them will, and it's the Mega 6.3.

A recent Bluetooth SIG filing for model SPH-L600 - a designation with basically no known history - contains little information of use, other than confirming this is a Samsung handset with LTE bound for Sprint, as can be deduced from the model prefixes.

However, we have good reason to believe (via a reliable source) that the screen size of this device is 6.3 inches, a description that only the Galaxy Mega 6.3 fits.

[Deal Alert] Sprint LG Optimus G Drops To $0.01 For New And Renewing Customers On Amazon

If you're in the market and don't need the most cutting edge device, Amazon has a solid deal on the LG Optimus G for Sprint. The price for this handset has fallen to a single penny on a 2-year contract. This deal is open to all interested parties, whether it's for a new line of service or not. The Optimus G was previously only this cheap for new customers.

The LG Optimus G came out last fall, but it has since been overshadowed by the likes of the HTC One and Galaxy S4. But hey, there's still plenty to like in the Optimus G.

[Deal Alert] Sprint's HTC One $79 For New Accounts And $99 For Upgrades From Amazon Wireless

The HTC One is undoubtedly HTC's best and most innovative phone to date. Up to this point, making one your own on The Now Network meant shelling out $200 for an upgrade or $100 if you came from another carrier (thanks to Sprint's number porting incentive); if those prices are still too steep for your taste and you've been waiting for a better deal to come along, now may be the time to buy.

Amazon Wireless just dropped its price on Sprint's One to $79 for new accounts (which is just $20 less than Sprint's offering if you take advantage of the aforementioned number port-in bonus) and – the real deal here – $99 for upgrades.

Sprint Buys Handmark Inc. And Its Subsidiary OneLouder Apps, Will Merge Both Teams With Its Pinsight Media+ Advertising Service

We've long been fans of OneLouder apps here at Android Police, so it comes as a bit of a shock to see that the company was purchased – along with its parent company, Handmark Inc. – by Sprint. For those who may be unfamiliar with the name OneLouder, the dev team is responsible for apps like 1Weather, Friendcaster, and TweetCaster, just to name a few. Handmark, on the other hand, is more of an all-in-one app store for Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone/Mobile, Palm, and the like.

So, the question is: what does Sprint want with an app store and a mobile development team?

Sprint HTC One Getting First OTA Update (1.29.651.10): Supposedly Fixes Dreaded Capacitive Button Sensitivity Issues

Sprint's version of the HTC One is about to receive a much-needed OTA update, albeit a relatively minor one, that promises to fix the rather annoying home and back button sensitivity issues that have been afflicting the handset. I commented on this issue in my review of the One, and while I called it minor then, the more I used the phone, the more annoying it become in certain situations - particularly when holding the phone while lying down.

The issue seemed to be that the touch targets for the capacitive buttons were set far too close to the display, and the pad of your finger would often need to hit the area between what you would expect to be the strike zone and the edge of the visible display on the phone in order to register a tap.
