If you were given the choice, would you prefer a smartphone with a physical QWERTY keyboard, or would you prefer one that came with a full touchscreen instead? Well if you have chosen the former, it seems that Sprint might be your carrier of choice as the company has recently announced the LG Mach. The phone will be released this fall and is expected to be compatible with the carrier’s 4G LTE network.
According to David Owens, Vice President of Product at Sprint, “People actually like the comfort of a physical keyboard and say there are fewer errors. They want a two-handed device.” The LG Mach will feature a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4” display and will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preinstalled. No word on whether it will be bumped up to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but for the physical keyboard lover, you can expect to fork out $100 for the LG Mach together with a new two-year contract.
