Google is getting ready to allow Google Apps users into the Inbox frenzy. In other news, Sprint is offering a stunning family plan and an awesome new device.
Inbox by Gmail is a new way to look at email, but so far Google Apps users have not been able to see it. The service has only been available to regular Gmail users until now. This means that Google Apps Education or Business users were left out of the loop, but this won’t be the case for long.
We have been waiting for news on the topic and Sundar Pichai, head of Android, Chrome and Apps, has finally shed some light on the subject. He takes it to Twitter to tell us that Inbox is “rolling out to apps customers imminently”.
Opinion: This means we could see support rolling out any moment. This could mean today, tomorrow, next week or later. We are not sure, but we hope it’s sooner than later.

Sprint may not be the strongest carrier, and new reports say they have lost their #3 spot to T-Mobile, but they sure know how to offer sweet deals. Today, they have announced a family plan that offers you 12 GB of shared data for up to 10 lines, priced at only $90.
What about that access charge? Well, the price has been reduced to $15 a month for handsets. But don’t worry, those who cash in on this deal by switching from another carrier can get that fee waived for a whole year. That is one hell of a deal! And those who switch from another carrier can also get an up to $350 reward card per line (for paying ETF fees).
The offer itself ends on MArch 12th, but the Access Charge waiving will stay live until March 30th.
Opinion: How many of you are switching? Sprint happens to be horrible in my area, so I would never consider it. I don’t think I would be able to use up those 12 GB even if I tried! This may be a good deal if you live in a 4G LTE area, though.
Maybe you are signing up for this deal and want to get a good phone. Just as promised, the LG G Flex 2 has gone up for pre-order at Sprint’s website. It is a great phone, and you should check out our hands-on article on it for more details. Not sure if you want it yet? Maybe Sprint’s deal may entice you to jump the fence.
The Now Network is throwing in a free LG Quick Circle case to anyone who pre-orders the device between today and March 12th. The device costs $504 off-contract, but you can take care of that bill with monthly payments. Or you can get it for $199.99 on a 2-year contract. By the way, it launches on March 13th, just in case pre-ordering is not your thing.
Opinion: I wouldn’t mind carrying an LG G Flex around for a while. It’s a hell of a phone, and comes with enough power to keep most people happy. Also, I wouldn’t say no to a free case if given the opportunity. You may as well pre-order it if you want to get this phone, anyways.
