Hi, Everybody. I'm Lynn from CNET Bringing you guys the LG Viper from Sprint. This is Sprint first 4g LTE Device and I know what you're thinking. Sprint doesn't even have a 4g Network yet, but it will starting some time in the middle of this year. Until then the LG Viper will be shipped with its 3g capability turned on as default. It has a 4 inch gorilla glass touch screen, 1 gigabyte of ram and its powered by a 1.2 Gigahertz Dual Core Processor. It's an Android Gingerbread Device for now, but it will be upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich later on. It's also equipped with an NFC Chip and Google Wallet, so you can purchase items with your phone wirelessly and share information with other NFC enabled devices. The viper has a front facing VGA Camera and a 5 Megapixel Camera in the back that is capable or recording 1080p HD Video. The phone is also being padded as an eco-friendly device. It's casing is made out of 50% recycled plastics. It's also certified platinum by Underwriters Laboratories for satisfying the highest level of environmental and sustainability requirements. You could begin pre-ordering it now and it will be available at (EMS?) on Earth Day, April 22nd for a $100. Again, I'm Lynn from CNET, bringing you guys the LG Viper from Sprint.
