LG Marquee coming soon to Boost Mobile, can be yours for $280 off-contract
The LG Marquee is no Android heavyweight by any means, but it is still one decent all-around smartphone. It is currently available on Sprint, and getting one won't cost you a dime, as long as you do not mind the 2-year carrier contract that goes along with it.
However, if you are not much into commitment, you will soon be able to grab the LG Marquee from Boost Mobile. Starting January 23, the carrier will be offering it for $280 paired with its $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinkage. That gets you unlimited nationwide talk, text messaging and data, while shrinking your monthly bill the longer you stay loyal to Boost Mobile.
So, what do you get for your money? A bright, 4-inch NOVA display, for starters. It has a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels and a brightness output of 700 nits for superior outdoor visibility. Inside it ticks a 1GHz single-core processor, and 4 gigs of internal storage are at your disposal. Not to be forgotten are its rear and front-facing cameras, offering 5 and 2 megapixels of resolution respectively. In terms of software, Android 2.3 Gingerbread comes out of the box.
The LG Marquee will be available for purchase at Boost Mobile's retail outlets, at select independent retailers, and on the carrier's web page. Additionally, for an extra $5, you may opt in for the carrier's phone insurance plan, which has you covered in case the smartphone breaks, gets stolen, or damaged. Anyone thinking of picking this one up?
