First Look: LG Marquee (Sprint)

1:02 /

At Pepcom in New York City, we take a First Look at the LG Marquee a thin, superlight phone from Sprint. Powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the smartphone features a 1GHz processor, a 4-inch Nova display, 5-megapixel camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNET TV and we are here at the Pepcom Holiday Spectacular here in New York with a First Look at the LG Marquee sold exclusively at Sprint. And what makes it unique is that it has a 4-inch NOVA screen and what that's supposed to do is take up less battery life and be a little brighter. Now it feels pretty light in the hands and it's also described as your entry-level smartphone. It's about $100. That's after a $50 rebate into your contract, but you're not really losing on it that much. You still have 2 cameras, one in the front 2 megapixels for video-chatting, 5 megapixels at the back with a flash. It's 3G, not 4G but it has the other kind of flash too. It has Adobe Flash. It comes loaded with Android Gingerbread. It has a 1-gigahertz processor. It's available for pre-sale starting on September 20th. This is the first time Sprint is doing a pre-sale. But you could pick it up in stores October 2nd. For CNET TV, I'm Bridget Carey with your First Look at the LG Marquee.
