LG Intros QuickMemo for Its Android Phones
LG today announced a new application called QuickMemo, which will launch first in the U.S. on the LG Viper sold by Sprint. QuickMemo is similar to Samsung's S Note and S Memo apps, but QuickMemo doesn't require the use of a stylus. It allows LG device owners to draw images, edit documents, personalize messages, and share comments on content such as web pages, photos, maps, digital magazines, and so on using only their finger. LG QuickMemo will be available for the Sprint Viper starting July 16, and will come to more LG mobile devices later this year. The free app will be delivered as part of a system update.
Hands-On: LG Viper for Sprint
Sprint showed off one of its first LTE 4G smartphones at CES, the LG Viper. We took a quick look at it and here are our thoughts.
Sprint Announces LG Viper with LTE
Sprint today provided a few details about the LG Viper, an upcoming Android smartphone that will be one of the first to use Sprint's forthcoming Long Term Evolution network. The LG Viper has Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 4.0-inch WVGA touchscreen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a primary 5.0-megapixel camera and front-facing VGA camera, and Near Field Communication and Google Wallet.
Sprint's LTE to Launch On 1900MHz Only
All of the Long Term Evolution 4G devices released by Sprint this year will use only its 1900MHz spectrum, said Sprint spokesperson David Owen in an interview with Phone Scoop. Right now, Sprint doesn't have access to Clearwire's spectrum nor LightSquared's spectrum for LTE services, so it will repurpose its 1900MHz spectrum assets to handle both its current CDMA voice/data network and future LTE data network.
Sprint Says It Will Offer Nationwide 5G By Mid-2019
Sprint will use its 2.5 GHz spectrum holdings to provide the backbone for its planned 5G network, which is on deck to go live during the first half of 2019. The company is already hard at work on what it calls its Next-Gen Network.
Sprint to Release 10 Google Wallet-Capable Phones This Year
Google said that it will expand the availability of its Google Wallet product to Sprint customers with the launch of 10 new phones throughout the year that will have the proper NFC support. The first phone to gain Google Wallet functionality will be the LG Viper, which was announced earlier this year and is one of the first LTE-equipped phones that will be sold by Sprint.
