Sprint calls dibs on Sharp AQUOS Crystal

The mid-range device is also coming to Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile

Sprint on Tuesday announced the upcoming availability of the Sharp AQUOS Crystal, an Android-powered smartphone with mid-level hardware. Due “soon”, the device features a quad-core Snapdragon processor, 1.5GB RAM, and 8GB internal storage. The rear houses an 8-megapixel camera while the front offers users a 1.2-megapixel shooter.
