Sprint Force by ZTE now available for $49.99
Right on time, the Sprint Force is now available to buy… at Sprint obviously, where else? The smartphone manufactured by ZTE had its pricing and release date leaked last week, and it looks like both of those were correct.
You can purchase a Sprint Force right now, online or in stores, for $49.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) with a new two-year contract. The full price is $299.99.
The Force will also be launched by Boost Mobile, one of Sprint’s prepaid brands, but that will happen on March 7 (so next Thursday). Over there, you’ll be able to get it for $199.99 sans contract.
The ZTE Force for Sprint comes with a 4-inch 480×800 Gorilla Glass touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera, a 1 MP front camera, a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, and a 1,730 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
So this is a decent midrange Android smartphone, hampered only by the pretty old OS version that’s not likely to ever get a major update.
