LG Optimus One arriving on Virgin Mobile as Optimus V
The LG Optimus One is one of the most popular affordable Android handsets out there – with a modification for almost each of the major carriers, you can even choose your network freely. And now Virgin Mobile joins the rest with its own version of the Optimus One – the LG Optimus V.


The Optimus V will be subsidized and available for $149.99 starting February 1st at RadioShack. While the date is not yet officially confirmed, we have no reason to believe the phone would be delayed much longer. Specwise, the upcoming Optimus V is expected to be the same as Sprint's Optimus S. The Optimus V will most likely feature the same 3.2-inch screen with a resolution of 320 x 480, a 600 MHz processor and a 3.2 megapixel camera.


Virgin Mobile's plans all include unlimited text, email, data and web and range from $25 a month for 300 minutes to $60 for unlimited anytime minutes.

Screaming deal. So tempting to jump ship from Sprint to their $40/mo 1200 min, unlimited data & text plan. Only issue is my wife and mother in law are on my Sprint plan. My wife is happy with her Evo and my mother in law is happy with her Sprint Intercept with Froyo. I could easily switch my mother in law to a Virgintercept once they get the 2.2 update, but my wife would have a hard time switching to an Optimus V from an Evo. But the best thing about the MSM7227 proc in the Optimus One phones is the Adreno 205 GPU built onto the proc. Much better than the old school 528mhz procs with no GPU in the Hero and Mytouch 3G. The Adreno 205 is the same GPU from the first gen Snapdragon.

I was at RadioShack today and saw it. There was the phone on display there. They said they put it up today but with no word on how much it would cost. They also said it won't be out for awhile though.
