While not exactly a name synonymous with the latest technology and gadgets, Straight Talk, which is a branch of TracFone, has added a second Android phone to their lineup. The LG Optimus Q has been slated to the lower-end carrier for $179.99 when paired up with the company’s $45 monthly plan, and comes with:
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- 3.2-inch screen
- 3-megapixel camera
- Slide-out Qwerty keyboard
The device slightly outshines its carrier cousin in specs, but is still well nestled in the area of “low- to mid-range”. Also, while Straight Talk functions off of Verizon
, AT&T, T-Mobile
, and Sprint Nextel networks, the Android devices run only on Sprint
‘s network, thanks to a deal between the two companies.
