LG Viper

As promised, the Sprint LG Viper 4G LTE is available for preorder today for $99. (That's on a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate.) In exchange for that Benjamin you'll get a 4-inch NOVA display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 5MP camera, NFC radio and Sprint ID, plus eventual 4G LTE data on Sprint's fledgling 4G LTE network. Plus, you'll get 50GB of online storage from Box.

Sprint's website says it'll "do our best to get it to you before Sunday, April 22," which suggests that'll be the official in-store date. So, who's in?

Update: Sprint's just made it official, saying it'll definitely be in stores on Sunday, and that preorders may arrive as early as April 20.

It doesn't matter if it is stock or dressed up. A new phone with Gingerbread after ICS has been out for six months is going to suck no matter what.

Hello everyone this is LG and we need your attention please: In exchange for that Benjamin you'll get a 4-inch NOVA display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 5MP camera, NFC radio and Sprint ID, plus eventual 4G LTE data on Sprint's fledgling 4G LTE network. Plus, you'll get 50GB of online storage from Box, Oh!!! i almost forgot, also the nice random reboots to go with it.

Agreed. We know next to nothing about it. We don't even know for sure what the back will look like. There are rumors of CPU differences vs the Verizon version and everything. I've never seen Sprint be able to be so secretive.

Well I know that but is there Sprint branding on it? Are there Sprint apps on it? When is the release date? No internal Sprint documents suggesting a release like most phones get.

After a quick Google search I do see that the processor rumor has been put to rest which I didn't realize and is unfortunate. Would have been nice to get it more on par with the performance of the One X.

I'll predict that there will be Sprint Branding, and it'll be pretty much at the same place it is on the Epic Touch.
