The 4G LTE enabled Boost Force by ZTE is now up for grabs at Boost Mobile store. The handset was announced last month together with the HTC One SV and will be one of the first devices supporting super-fast 4G LTE connectivity released on Boost Mobile prepaid network. The prepaid carrier is selling the phone at a very affordable price of just $199.99 without contract.
Right on time, the ZTE Force landed today at Sprint. This is actually no surprise, since we expected this launch since last week. The phone is now available online and in stores for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. Of course, you will have to sign a new two-year contract to purchase the Force at this price. Otherwise the phone costs $299.99. The handset will also be launched by Sprint’s prepaid brand, Boost Mobile, on March 7 where it will be priced at $199.99 without contract.
Two Sprint subsidiaries, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile, have finally joined in on the 4G LTE fun. Having utilized the WiMAX network owned by Sprint in the past to offer 4G to their customers, the carriers are taking advantage of a Sprint network once again, this time to introduce LTE connectivity. The two prepaid carriers announced today that they will launch LTE-capable phones that will be compatible with Sprint’s LTE network.
Flagship smartphones from different manufacturers are certainly running the show, but the more modest ones deserve our attention too. Let’s be honest – not everyone needs a super-powerful beast especially since the only thing the phone is used for is to make calls, send messages and check email once in a while. Sprint is about to add one such phone, the ZTE Force 4G LTE, to its portfolio. The handset is expected to launch on March 1 and it will set you back $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year contract.
Looks like the Sprint’s pre-paid subsidiary – Boost Mobile will begin offering their very first 4G LTE capable phones, thus allowing their subscribers to take advantage of Sprint’s growing 4G LTE network. Rumors about 4G LTE handsets heading to the carrier have been circulating for some time, but there were no details and proof to confirm anything. And now we know much more, from the names of the devices to some of the specs.
