The LG Viper will be $149.99 less a $50 mail-in rebate making the anticipated handset just $99 with a 2-year commitment for both new and existing customers. Sprint is also saying that customers who pre-order will begin receiving their devices as early as Friday, April 20th, giving them as much as 2 days of exclusivity before the LG Viper goes on sale in stores.
The eco-friendly LG Viper features ULE Platinum Certification, a casing comprised of 50% recycled plastics, and a 100% recyclable packaging. Specs wise, this Android Gingerbread device features a 4-inch 800x480 WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB ROM, 4GB microSD card, Gorilla Glass, a 5MP rear-facing camera, and 4G LTE capabilities.
Those looking to grab the LG Viper 4G LTE early can head on over to Sprint at www.sprint.com/viper to pre-order.

If its coming in April 22, when does LTE gonna be available? Its ridiculous to walk around with an LTE phone without an LTE service anywhere.

WiMax as similar though. It was available in certain cities and you still had to pay the 10 dollar premium charge and sit there and wait for it to come to your city. But Sprint's LTE is suppose to be out and bigger than its WiMax when it comes out. But really only time will tell. Sprint may have mad some "bad" moves but i fell they are finally moving in the right direction. if they sell to the right market this viper might sell pretty well.

And on Sprint's homepage they're saying that the Evo 4G LTE is going to be available on 5/7, so I'd wait the extra 2 weeks our or so and pay the extra $100 or so for all the additional features.

I heard rumors for this weekend, but most likely the same time as the Viper

As far as I know, Charlotte, NC won't have 4G nor does it have Sprint's updated 3G. So as of right now, getting this phone in this area, or a non-4G area, is pointless. Same goes for the Galaxy Nexus. That is, unless you're near Wi-Fi all the time, which I am, fortunately. Also, DEATH TO SPRINT ID.!!!
