LG Marquee

Boost Mobile announced that they will be offering the LG Marquee on their $55 Android plan starting January 23.  The phone will cost $279.99 (plus taxes if applicable) at Boost retail locations and online, and that money gets you a slim smartphone with a great display.  This is the same LG Marquee we saw unveiled for Sprint last fall in New York, and is the Americanized version of the LG Optimus Black.  Specs are mid-range in today's world of dual-cores and nuclear-powered handsets, but are actually pretty good for a pre-paid device:

  •     Dimensions: 4.8" (H) x 2.52" (W) x 0.36" (D)
  •     Weight: 3.95oz
  •     NOVA Display: 4-inch color TFT (480 x 800) WVGA
  •     Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  •     1GHz processor
  •     Memory: 512MB RAM, 2GB ROM
  •     1500mAh battery
  •     5.5 hrs Talk Time
  •     MicroSD Slot (2GB included card)
  •     Wifi Enabled-- 802.11 b/g/n (Hotspot capable)
  •     Virtual QWERTY keyboard (with SWYPE)
  •     5-megapixel camera (rear)
  •     2-megapixel camera (front)

With Boost Mobile's interesting shrinkage plans (payments gradually get less the longer you keep making them) this could be a great choice for a lot of folks.
