LG Viper is a 4G LTE smartphone for Sprint, which also happens to be ECO-friendly
Now, while we can imagine that most smartphone aficionados will flock for the Galaxy Nexus, but you know, there's always that group of people who would rather go for something different. The alternative way to go in terms of LTE phones on Sprint, so to speak, is the LG Viper – an Android 2.3 Gingerbread handset, equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4" WVGA NOVA screen and 5MP camera. Seems like a mid- to high-end smartphone to us! What makes it even more interesting, however, is that it's also an ECO-friendly smartphone, having a casing, 35% of which is made of recycled plastics. In addition, the phone will come with a charger sporting a no-load consumption rating of .03W, exceeding the EC Code of Conduct on energy efficiency.
Unfortunately, pricing and availability details will be announced closer to launch.

Meh, still not going to top the Evo, especially with another one probably around the corner

Sprint ID though.? They need to get rid of that service. Who really uses it.? Hell, I was hoping that the LG Optimus UI was on this so that Sprint ID was hidden.

Its pretty much a dual core, LTE, LG Marquee. Since the Marquee is cheap, at some places for free.
This might be around $50-$100

Come on people! Why is Sprint touting a 1.2ghz dual core with lte and shipping it with Gingerbread?!?!?!?!?! ICS is already out, and by the time we get this device, it will be several months in. We all know how wonderful LG is with thier software updates ***cough*** LG Optimus S ***cough***
