Sprint Announces Sprint Force, A $49.99 LTE Handset

Sprint has just announced a new budget 4G LTE smartphone. The phone goes under the name Sprint Force and will be available for $49.99 on a two-year contract. However, to get this price, you have to mail-in a $50 mail-in-rebate. As far as specs go, the device rocks a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, a 4″ 480×800 display and a 5-megapixel camera. The phone is powered by Android 4.0 and there is no word of a Jelly Bean update as of now.

Sprint has also included Sprint ID with the Sprint Force. Sprint ID is a new service which allows users to deeply customize their Android devices without any sort of hacking. The service includes tons of wallpapers, apps, widgets and other gizmos. Sprint has said that “ID packs deliver a complete mobile experience – based on consumers’, students’ or businesses’ interests or favorite brands.”

Overall, the Sprint Force looks like a good device for anyone looking for a cheap yet functional smartphone on Sprint. The device will be good for non-techies or people on a limited budget. Kids will also like the phone as it doesn’t have a huge screen and connects to Sprint ID. For $49.99, this phone seems like an overall good deal.
