Virgin Mobile Officially Announces LG Optimus Slider, Launch Next Month


Recently we saw the LG Optimus Slider with Virgin Mobile branding on BestBuy’s website, and we told you that it would be out soon. Guess what? Today’s the day, but instead of BestBuy launching the device, it has debuted on Virgin Mobile and will hit their stores on Oct. 31 — or if you want it first — on their website Oct. 17. The Optimus Slider will be sold for $199.99 without contract, which is great for people looking for a decent handset sans the contract. It comes with a 3.2 inch touchscreen display, Android 2.3, 3.2 MP camera, Bluetooth 3.0 and it comes preloaded with Virgin Mobile Live 2.0 Social networking application.

Anyone out there planning to grab this later next month from Virgin Mobile? I am sure it’s a good device, especially for students/teenagers, because it’s cheap and comes with a sliding QWERTY keyboard, which is good for messaging. Tell us your thoughts in the comment box after the break.
