Sprint announces 4 new LTE devices on the way "this fall."

 

Bold 4G LTE Lineup from Sprint Gains Four New Powerhouse Devices

 

"These four new 4G LTE additions will be available this fall and will provide customers powerful devices that fit their lifestyles:

-Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is the first tablet to combine the benefits of Sprint 3G and 4G LTE with a vivid 10.1-inch touchscreen display, Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.

-LG Optimus G features an advanced 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, making it a dream device for photo lovers who are ready to leave their point-and-shoot at home and just carry their smartphone.

-LG Mach makes 4G LTE accessible as an inexpensive yet sleek smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard and Sprint ID.

-Sprint Plug-in-Connect Tri-Mode USB brings Sprint 3G/4G/4G LTE directly to a laptop through a USB connection."

 

No exact dates.. says "this fall."

LG Optimus G is the new android super phone. Move over GS3. I need this in my life ASAP :D

 

The new LG Nexus is rumored to be based off same hardware(minus camera). That means AOSP on the Optimus G should be a breeze. [READ AS: Good for future updates from the XDA dev community]

 

13MP camera could be good news.. or it could just mean more noise in our picture due to poor senors.

 

The Optimus G also does not use on-screen buttons like the rumored LG Nexus will have.. which means the Optimus G makes better use of the bottom bezel space as well as frees up the screen real estate.

Unfortunately, it's made by LG

 

My first thoughts exactly! But who can you trust now? Samsung burned me with the Epic 4G so I decided on the EVO LTE, then HTC burned me on that one and the Samsung seemed to be the device to get. Definitely be sitting out buying any phone until after it was launched a couple of months.

I hope for a phone that will be supported by the dev community for around 2 years. Usually that's only reserved for Nexus phones, but the OG EVO did pretty well in that respect.

 

This site will be very helpful in finding my next phone and I will probably sit out a month until antenna reviews come in and the first price cut hits.

While the epic may have been slow to start it has nearly every rom known to man now. The AOSP builds have no issues and are kept up. Evo LTE, idk on that one.

 

My Evo 3D is pretty limited rom and update wise. I'm liking sense a lot and the custom rom I'm using has ported in Jelly Bean features (mainly google now), so I'm not really complaining now but with new features in future releases, I'll be tempted to switch later.

As tempting as it may be with LTE, I won't buy a carrier subsidized 2 year contract tablet without/until they have unlimited data. I will stick with either a clear unlimited hotspot or tether plan and a cheaper wifi model.

No complaints on the roms for the Epic. Loved CM on it. The radio was flaky and so was the gps.

Unfortunately for me clear isn't available in my area. If it was I wouldn't be able to see myself adding another 2 year shackle to my ankle. An LTE nexus 7 or tab 2 7" with an unlimited plan would be perfect timing for the rollout in my market.

I thought the devs figured out how to put the Crespo4G radios on it and the performance improved drastically.

you don't have to sign up for 2 years now on clear, you can get hotspot or usb dongle at best buy for 50 bucks or less (but they did make me activate the first month), but you can cancel any time.

The Optimus G has a nice sized camera, and comes with 32GB built in storage & 2GB RAM. Move over GS III, there's a new top dog in town.

With the release of these 4 devices & the Galaxy Note II, Sprint now has 13 of the 15 LTE devices they promised for 2012.

I have to admit, the specs look very tempting but AFAIK, LG has lousy support for their devices. Maybe an lg based nexus would be a good idea now that I've seen the potential behind lg.

Maybe you and Josh could set up an LG play date.

 

:P

Unfortunately I am working in Salt Lake City on business for the next several months.

 

And I'm too busy working so I can buy a new and better phone for me. Click here to see it.

    • The Kendall/Kerr/Gillespie PCS swap is a very nice win-win for AT&T and T-Mobile. Means both of them will have a 20x20 PCS channel, though in exchange T-Mobile goes from 10x10 to 5x5 on one of their spectrum blocks. I figure AT&T will start running n2 DSS on that channel, as they have enough customers in those areas to need the capacity, while T-Mobile will probably just run B2 LTE, as once Auction 108 finally clears they'll have plenty of n41 to play with. Guessing we'll see the non-G-block 5x5 slice running n25, but it would get aggregated with n71 rather than n41 I figure as n71 will remain 20x20 there until the STA goes away (and maybe after that, as if T-Mobile gets 700 MHz as the result of VZW buying West Central Wireless's spectrum there's no reason to run LTE in 600). Which makes me think that the next move is T-Mobile trading 700A for the 5x5 of orphaned PCS (E block) to VZW once the WCW transaction closes, as that would give VZW 20x20 PCS in the area, and would give T-Mobile 700 MHz in an area where they have none. Then VZW can either trade 700B to T-Mobile as well in exchange for the AWS I block in those areas (gives T-Mobile 10x10 B12, gives VZW 15x15 B66) or they can cut a deal with AT&T to give AT&T 10x10 B12 (AT&T has the lower C block), but I'm not sure what that deal would be if trading like for like (vs. AT&T handing VZW their upper tiny slice of B5, giving VZW 15x15 to play with in that band post-WCW-acquisition). EDIT: Just looked at AWS spectrum again, and if AT&T would rather have 10x10 B12 than 2x 10x10 AWS, they could swap AWS-D for VZW's 700B block. That would give VZW 20x20 AWS, and would take AT&T down to 10x10 + 5x5...which they'd likely be fine with as they have 20x20 PCS, small cells in the busy areas, and as a result of the transaction three 10x10 chunks of spectrum in the area below 1 GHz. And if VZW traded 700A to T-Mobile for PCS-E VZW would have 20x20 PCS as well. Which is quite useful in an area that's macro-only for VZW and likely not dense enough for proper mobile usage of CBRS or C-Band (and an area where VZW doesn't even run DSS now).
    • Yeah, $250 credit for an S22 is awful. tbf last year they didn't have solid upgrade credits until mid-late April, which is when I paid $225 to swap my S21 for an S22. Happy to wait 'til then for that kind of deal, though I'll be annoyed at battery life in the mean time.
    • Miserable upgrade credits from Samsung this year unless you want to rely on carrier financing. Sticking with S22U for a while. 
    • So far we've documented close to 100 Sprint conversions in NYC with permits still rolling in and that's only what we've identified manually. Tons of sites get converted/updated without permits so there's potentially a lot more that we haven't spotted yet. There are also dozens of sites that are still broadcasting the keep PLMN, some have been decommissioned but historically the vast majority have been converted.
