Sprint getting LG Optimus G, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and LG Mach in its Android 4G LTE fleet
It’s not just the Optimus G, though. Sprint is also getting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and the newly announced LG Mach, all supportings its 4G LTE bands.
To freshen up your mind, the LG Optimus G comes with an impressive 4.7-inch 768 x 1280-pixel True HD IPS Plus screen and it’s the first phone to ship with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip along with a whopping 2GB of RAM. It might be more powerful than your notebook (if you haven’t upgraded in a while!).
Next, the Galaxy Tab 2 is a decent 10.1-inch tablet sporting a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Nothing ground-breaking here, though: the device has a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1 gig of RAM, runs on ICS and has LTE support.
Finally, the LG Mach comes with a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard (talk about rarity!). It’s a mid-range device with a 4-inch screen and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor.

All of these new phones may sound nice but with little to no LTE towers in operation I strongly doubt if sprint will get anywhere as a network.

I have no doubt this is a nice phone. But if Sprlnt doesn't get any Windows 8 phones by their release date. ATT gets 5 new lines.

Might as well go and switch. So far we've only heard from Verizon, AT&T, And T-Mobile getting WP8. Sprint once again is being silent.

Sprint has to sell those iPhone's that they over paid for!

Your loss. Windows Phone 8 will be a fail.

What good is having all these new "LTE" phones on a network that releases lte markets at 10-25 % complete, extremely spotty 4g coverage and still snail sloooooooow 3g. SMH!

Would you rather they wait to put any LTE in their phones until their LTE network is completely launched, just sitting there unused, and then have to wait to upgrade your phone to take advantage of it?

Exactly what downphoenix said. Verizon and AT&T do the same thing.
