Sprint announced Thursday that it will begin selling the LG Mach, a new Android smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard, beginning on Nov. 11 for $99.99 with a new two-year contract. The LG Mach runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, an operating system that's now two generations old, and is equipped with a 4-inch WVGA display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, support for Sprint's 3G and 4G LTE networks, a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p video, a 0.3-megapixel front facing camera for video chat, Bluetooth 4.0 and more.

At $99.99 with a new two-year contract, it's a fine budget priced handset, but we recommend you also check out the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S III, which will set you back a bit more but will be worth it over the length of a two-year term.

Sprint also reminded that customers can now pre-order the $199.99 Optimus G beginning today.
