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.
