Virgin Mobile has announced the upcoming launch of the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) equipped LG Optimus Slider for $199.99. The Optimus Slider is the second generation model to the LG Optimus V which was released on Virgin Mobile in early 2011. The device will be available for order online on October 16th and in retail stores starting on October 30th.
The Optimus Slider features a 3.2-inch HVGA display, 3.2-Megapixel camera, 1500 mAh battery, and a 4-row QWERTY keyboard. No talk yet as to on board memory, but we are hoping it is sufficient as their will be no included microSD card, so you may be stuck with buying additional memory cards.
