Android Overload: Sprint LTE Devices Hitting Late 2012, Virgin Mobile Getting Pair of ZTE Phones and More

Greetings, everyone. It’s another wonderful Monday here at the Phandroid and that means a jam packed day full of Android related news. Because there’s so much content we gather around from the four corners of the net, there’s always a few stories that don’t quite make the cut. For those that were almost written up, we place them here, in the Android Overload. This is the place you can always turn for a late night snack or when your hunger for all things Android simply cannot be quenched. Eat up and don’t forget to leave room for dessert!

    I love my 20% discount on my verizonwireless.com bill just for being a contractor with Comcast…must say I was shocked to even know I get a Verizon discount but I guess Fios (competitor) is another separate entity. I’m just pissed that I didn’t know about this until a year and a half after I started!
