Everyone has been waiting on Sprint to launch its new LTE network, and we’re now one step closer. The Now Network has just announced that it will begin taking pre-orders for the LG Viper 4G, one of its first LTE handsets. Pricing will be at $100 after $50 mail-in rebate, so it’s looking like this will be Sprint’s budget LTE handset.
As far as specs go, the Viper 4G sports a 4-inch NOVA display with a WVGA resolution, 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot and NFC. Google Wallet will be on board to make use of the NFC, and Gingerbread will be running the show. Who’s excited for Sprint’s LTE network? Will you be pre-ordering the Viper 4G?
