The LG Marquee made a cameo appearance tonight in New York, a night before Sprint and LG are slated to “officially” unveil the device at New York City’s Fashion Week finale. The Marquee is the next big device from Sprint (after, of course, this Friday’s Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch launch), officially landing on October 6.

The app disappeared before popping back up last week as a $ 1.37 app.

Trying to encourage adoption the second time around, 8pen has found a  [Read More…]
