Radio Shack had quite the time showing off the exclusive they have on Sprint’s HTC EVO 3D, but for us Android enthusiasts who excrete little excitement for an alternate color of a device that’s already released, a phone called the “LG Marquee” stole the show. Our friends at Android Central point out that it looks a lot like the LG Optimus Black. And if you don’t remember, Sprint was rumored to be launching that phone after one “Optimus B” made a quick cameo in Sprint’s “Employee Packs” section for Sprint ID. We’re glad to see Sprint hasn’t given up on that one because we were absolutely in love with the display on that thing when we last saw it. Let’s hope they get this one on store shelves sooner than soon. 14 second mark in the video above.
