LG G Flex initial US availability detailed

LG announced the upcoming US availability of the G Flex earlier in the month during CES. At the time LG mentioned the handset would be coming available during the first quarter of the year and with three of the four major US carriers. Those three included AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.
