Sprint to offer LG Mach Nov. 11, preorders for Optimus G start

Not only will Sprint sell its QWERTY keyboard phone, the LG Mach, on November 11, but preorders for the quad-core LG Optimus G start today.

Sprint announced today that it will begin selling its sliding keyboard phone, the LG Mach , starting on November 11 for $99.99 after a two-year carrier agreement.

We first saw the dual-core Mach last month during MobileCon in San Diego. In addition to its 4-inch WVGA touch screen, it has a 1.2GHz CPU, a 1,700mAh battery, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.

The handset also runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and sports a five-row QWERTY keyboard that includes navigational arrows and an entire row for numbers.

Furthermore, the carrier announced that preorders for the LG Optimus G , LG's flagship phone of the season, start today. With its whopping 13-megapixel camera, quad-core processor, and 4G LTE capabilities, we considered the Optimus G as LG's best phone offering to date.

The handset will cost $199.99 after users sign a two-year contract.
