So the good news is that this upcoming LG LX260 for Sprint looks pretty trick from the microscopic image we've been able to grab -- nifty blue and black color scheme, QWERTY slide -- pretty much what we were expecting from the rendering floating around a while back. That's all well and good. What isn't good, though, is that Sprint's developer site also reveals the the device won't have anything more than 1xRTT to push bits and bytes around. Given the nifty form factor, EV-DO seems like a foregone conclusion to us, but we suppose that'll go a long way toward keeping pricing in the double digits on contract. Other juicy tidbits confirmed here include a 220 x 176 display, 64MB of RAM, 64MB of ROM with microSD expansion, and a 1.3 megapixel cam. Fourth quarter, here we come!
