LG Viper might fittingly arrive in time for Earth Day, April 22nd
For those of you eager to snag a pre-order for the upcoming LG Viper for Sprint, the carrier’s first 4G LTE smartphone, you’re more than likely going to wake up super early tomorrow. However, we’ve been in the dark all this time regarding an actual availability date for the handset. Fear not people, well, that’s because we might have one for you.

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.

So there you have it folks, you ought to circle down the date if you intend to scope out Sprint’s upcoming 4G LTE smartphone. Oh yeah, just don’t forget about getting in with a pre-order as well starting tomorrow, April 12.
