Starting on October 17th, Virgin Mobile customers will have the opportunity of picking up the QWERTY packing LG Optimus Slider for $199.99 no-contract though their web site. However, it’s expected to become available through various retail channels starting on October 31st. Considering that it’s a prepaid Android powered smartphone and all, its $199.99 pricing is undoubtedly competitive – something that’s more in the line of a post-paid handset.
Therefore, if you’re a Virgin Mobile customer and yearning for something affordable, yet decent, then you‘ll want to make sure to pick up the LG Optimus Slider when it goes on sale.
