Sprint to Sell the LG Optimus F3 to Visually Impaired
Sprint today announced the availability of the LG Optimus F3, an Android smartphone that brings improved accessibility to those with visual impairments. The F3's defining characteristic is Google TalkBack, an accessibility app that will be enabled out of the box. Google TalkBack makes it easier for the visually impaired to interact with their device via speech-to-text technology. The F3 also includes a Sprint iD pack that has been created specifically to educate owners on accessibility features and services. The Optimus F3 runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and has a 4-inch IPS LCD screen with Gorilla Glass; a 1.2GHz dual-core processor; Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and LTE 4G; and a 5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture. It comes with a number of LG apps and services, such as VuTalk, QSlide, QuickMemo, and Q Translator. The LG Optimus F3 goes on sale June 14 and costs $29.99 with a new contract after rebate.
