The Now Network is having a huge day as it launches three new phones on its network—and two are even 4G LTE capable on Sprint’s not-yet existent 4G LTE network. Nevertheless, these handsets are hot. Today, you can pick up the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper, and Optimus Elite from Sprint (via Android Central).

Let’s start with the Galaxy Nexus, the obvious winner. Sprint’s version of the Galaxy Nexus is rocking a speedy 1.2GHz processor and Google Wallet, which Verizon purposely blocked. Sprint makes the Galaxy Nexus available for $199.

The LG Viper is also good looking. It packs a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch WVGA display, and Android 2.3. Sprint makes this device available for $99 on a two-year contract. If you can spare an extra $100, I think the Galaxy Nexus should be your No. 1 choice, but this device should do well too. Hit up the source link after the break to get more information. 

Lastly, there is the Optimus Elite, which is definitely an entry-level device. It packs a 3.5-inch screen and 5-megapixel camera, so it is really nothing special.

Sprint’s LTE network will first begin rolling out mid-summer in select markets. We will check out the Sprint Galaxy Nexus in a few days.
