Sprint and LG Announce the Marquee
Sprint today announced the LG Marquee, a new Android smartphone that will go on sale October 2 for $99.99 after rebate with a new agreement. The Marquee is a Sprint variant of the Optimus Black, which was announced earlier this year, and is being presented in partnership with the non-profit design collective MADE. Sprint and LG worked with fashion expert Stacy London and others to design custom cases for the Marquee. It has a 4-inch NOVA display with 800 x 480 pixels and a brightness of 700nit. The NOVA display also offers a 50% reduction in power needs while remaining bright enough for outdoor use. It has a 1GHz processor, 5 megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel secondary camera, 2GB of internal storage, and support for microSD cards up to 32GB. It also includes Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and supports mobile hotspot. The Marquee features Sprint iD user themes with Android 2.3. Current Sprint customers can pre-order the Marquee starting September 20.
