It looks like Sprint has finally announced the first 2 LTE devices and an LTE modem. Officially the Galaxy Nexus, the LG Viper. I will post to include a link to the official page soon. I am on my E4GT so its a little mpre cumbersome than my computer to link posts. What do you think of the newest selection?

Curious that the Viper doesn't have ICS, although that would lend credence to the theory that LTE phones will be released sooner rather than later. Since if we were waiting for a summer release, you would think by then phones would come shipped with ICS. Hopefully this phone will be upgraded. LG doesn't have a proven track record with updates kinda like Samsung.

I am excited about the GN, my son has the international version and it is a sweet phone. Hopefully it gets the 1.5 processor bump.

@legion125...that's an excellent point. I hadn't considered the ICS point. If the LG Viper wasn't coming out until summer, there's no reason why it wouldn't have ICS. Yet, they are promoting it with Android 2.3. Interesting to ponder...and exciting. Thanks!

:D

I like the Galaxy Nexus, it's a very nice device. However, I would like to see HTC Sense overlaid on top of ICS and see how it looks. I just hope that Sprint releases an LTE 3D device. Now that would be sweet. :)

Have you used Sense 3 yet? Although I'm a fan of Sense and like the widgets it brings to the table especially with all the variations that Sense 3 allows, I'm becoming concerned about just how much of an overlay you need. I'm beginning to see why these newer phones need so much additional RAM just to make the OS with the overlay function with minimal lag. This really became noticeable since I've had my NS4G. Although I don't have the widgets I like, the phone runs smoother and snappier than my EVO, at least until I rooted it.

@legion125 Have you tried the app "Beautiful widgets"? It is around $3 normal price, but I picked it up during the 10 cent sale. It has a lot of the widgets that Sense had. I use them for the rom I am using. You might want to check it out.

I did try it when my EVO was rooted and it worked well and looked nice w/o any performance issues. I was commenting on the effects of a stock EVO with Sense. Lately I'm getting more in a minimalist mood since I got my NS4G.

Yeah, I keep going more minimalist with my E4GT. I'm not a big fan of touchwiz so I keep trying out different roms to get closer to vanilla android. I do like the clock and weather widget though.
