LG’s LS860 Cayenne Provides a QWERTY Option to the LG Viper
A lot of talk lately has been putting Sprint, the Now Network in a pretty bad position, subjectively of course. From standard 3G data speed woes, to the lack of existing LTE functionality, yet LTE phones for sale. Other take stabs at the company taking a long risk on the iPhone, which ultimately help bog down their data speed. But if there is one thing that can indeed be said in the carrier’s favor it would be, they know how to offer options! Take the Kyocera Echo for example. It may not be the very best phone in the world, or even appeal to the masses but Sprint gave its user the option. Lately Sprint has been “upping” their game in the choices market with the likes of the LG Viper, Evo LTE 4G, the mystery LG LS970 and now with the likes of the LG LS860, which ironically enough is being assumed as the QWERTY loving cousin of the Viper…see options!
So if you like the prospect of the LG Viper in all its high powered greatness, but cannot let your thumbs give up the likes of a hardware based keyboard, then the LS860 is surely in your corner.
