Sprint’s LG Mach and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 4G LTE launch on November 11
Although they are hard to come by these days, it seems like Verizon’s Samsung Stratosphere II isn’t the only QWERTY slider to arrive on the market soon.
Sprint will release the LG Mach on November 11. The LG Mach comes with a five-row side-sliding full physical QWERTY keyboard that will surely constitute its greatest attraction, however the other specs aren’t half bad either.
The LG Mach has a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with flash, a 0.3 MP front-facing camera, a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of built-in storage space expandable via microSD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooh 4.0, 4G LTE support, and a 1,700 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The LG Mach will be sold for $99.99 with a new two-year contract. With a price that roughly matches the specs, and with that keyboard, this may sell pretty well.
On the same day as the Mach, Sprint will also release its first ever 4G LTE tablet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The tablet comes with a 10.1-inch 1280×800 touchscreen, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of built-in storage space, microSD support, and a 7,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Sprint will sell you a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for $549.99. Thankfully at this price you won’t need to sign your life away to get it. You can activate it with one of Sprint’s ‘month-to-month’ tablet rate plans, that start at $14.99 for 300 MB and go all the way up to $79.99 for 12 GB.
