LG Viper might fittingly arrive in time for Earth Day, April 22nd
From the looks of it all, a leaked screenshot from Sprint’s internal memo mentions the date of April 22nd as being its launch date for all sales channels. Although it’s not exactly an official confirmation just yet, it does appear to be a likely candidate seeing that the date happens to fall on a Sunday – the day when new sales start. In addition, Sundays in general are known to be a time when new devices launch as well.
Interestingly enough, the handset’s speculated release date also happens to be Earth Day – you know, that day when we’re all supposed to be as eco-friendly as possible. Taking into account the green friendly features of the LG Viper, like its casing that’s constructed out of 50% recycled materials, it all makes for a great argument for an April 22nd release date.

Pop up ad's on mobile devices is painfully annoying, trying to click that tiny X has me near the end of my rope with PA.

Sometimes I just have to quit trying to read an article because I can't see past the huge ads covering up the web page. Glad to know I am not alone.

I thought the nexus was sprints first lte phone

Sprint technically does not have 4G yet so it was not their first 4g phone now they are actually introducing 4g into their network with this as the first LTE phone.

What the hell does that mean smallcolabear? Have you ever heard of commas and periods?
Sprint actually had this on the website, "Introducing the Galaxy Nexus, Sprint's first 4G LTE device."

I work for Verizon and I get all the insider stuff for Sprint they are just now putting up markets for 4G, so even though they had the Nexus which is a 4G device they had no market for it. That would mean it technically does not count as a first 4G device. And I did not realize I was being graded on my grammer so I apoligize for you not understanding the sentence that I wrote.

I was not grading you, I was only trying to understand your statement but since you brought it up I have to doc your last post because it's improper grammar to start a sentence with the word "And".

It's a dual core 1.2 GHz phone with LTE, 1GB of Ram, a Nova display, NFC and will get ICS, for $99 bucks...
AND, it's a green / earth friendly phone for the tree huggers.....j/k

It has Sprint ID, which needs to die. Note to Sprint: GET RID OF SPRINT ID.!!!
