LG has been hitting it big in the US with the recent launch of the LG Nitro HD with AT&T, but for those who prefer something on the total opposite end of the spectrum, the LG Eclypse perfectly fits the bill with its affordable nature.

Already launched by Bell and Virgin Mobile in Canada, SaskTel is the latest Canadian wireless carrier to grab hold of the budget oriented Android powered smartphone. Quickly glancing over the images of the handset, its one main feature is the landscape style QWERTY keyboard it’s packing along. As for the rest, it features a 3.5” 320 x 480 display, 5-megapixel camera with flash, 720p HD video recording, 1GB of internal storage, preloaded  4GB microSD card, aGPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 14.4 Mbps HSPA+, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

With its modest specs and all, the absolute best thing going for the LG Eclypse is its price, which is set at $299.99 no-contract or free with your signature on a 3-year agreement. Therefore, if you want a decent texting device, but don’t feel like shelling out something substantial for a premium offering, we’re certain that the LG Eclypse might be reasonable enough for some people to accept.

lol, i picked up my g2x for $300 off contract. on the eclypse: 1GB internal storage is really bad and 14.4mbps isnt hspa+ like it says in the article, its just hspa.
