Sprint has announced that it will soon be releasing LG Marquee Android smartphone. It will be available starting October 2 for $99.99 with eligible upgrade or new two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. Pre-sales will start on September 20.
Powered by Android 2.3, LG Marquee comes with 5MP rear camera, 2MP front cam, 1GHz processor and 4 inch NOVA display. It is the same smartphone which is better known to international consumers as LG Optimus Black with the latest Android update.
“LG believes fashion and technology go hand-in-hand among today’s growing contingent of style-conscious and tech-savvy consumers,” said Tim O’Brien, vice president of marketing for LG Mobile. “By partnering with Sprint, MADE and Stacy London, LG effectively showcases three prominent phone features important to consumers: a sleek, thin profile, ultra light weight design and bright display.”
“These days, a wireless phone is much more than just a communication device – it also echoes one’s personal style and taste,” said David Owens, vice president – Product Development, Sprint. “Design has become a key factor in the purchase decision and the LG Marquee is sure to turn heads.”
