Is the LG Windows Phone LS831 heading to Sprint?
Back in October, an FCC filing about a Windows Phone Mango device caught our attention. At the time, it was unclear if the CDMA flavored LG LS831 was headed to Sprint or Verizon. Now, another visit to the Feds indicates that the model is heading to Sprint. First, The LG LS831 runs over the EMSR band (800Mhz), which is used only by Sprint. There is also support for the 1900MHz band. Additionally, one of the documents in the FCC package is called the "SprintNextel waiver" which pretty much speaks for itself.

Images that are part of the FCC documentation show that the device will have a 5MP rear-facing camera, a front-facing shooter, a microSD slot and an earphone jack. Unless Sprint decides not to offer this handset for some reason, it will be the carrier's first smartphone to grace the Windows Phone platform since the HTC Arrive, uh, arrived early last year.
