Virgin Mobile Alcatel Venture Android phone official for $100
The Virgin Mobile Alcatel Venture Android phone that leaked recently just got fleshed out by the carrier, in all of its $99.99 glory. It's a QWERTY candybar with 3G connectivity and Android 2.3 Gingerbread that comes light on the wallet, since Virgin's plans start from $35 monthly and don't require a contract.

Inside the Virgin Mobile Venture is powered by a measly 600MHz processor, coupled with 512MB of RAM. Above the portrait QWERTY physical keyboard is the 2.8" display with 240x320 pixels of resolution, and the phone comes with a 2GB microSD card preinstalled.

Well, Google's Eric Schmidt promised at his MWC keynote that entry-level Android phones will break the $100 barrier downwards soon, even in the US, but we didn't know he meant as soon as this week, with the Venture $99.99 handset.

The phone is up for pre-order in the source link below, and ship date is pinned for March 15.
