Virgin Mobile Lands HTC Wildfire S, LG Optimus Slider
Virgin Mobile USA today announced the addition of two Android handsets to its pre-paid lineup, the HTC Wildfire S, and the LG Optimus Slider. The Wildfire S will be Virgin Mobile's first device from HTC. It was announced earlier this year. The LG Optimus Slider (pictured) is a rebranded version of the LG Enlighten, and as the name implies is a sideways slider that offers a full QWERTY keyboard. It has a 3.2-inch HVGA display, 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, Bluetooth 3.0, and support for microSD cards up to 32GB. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The HTC Wildfire S will be available October 23 at Best Buy and RadioShack for $199.99. The LG Optimus Slider will be available October 17 from Virgin Mobile's web site for $199.99; October 31 in Best Buy and RadioShack stores; November 6 at Target; and November 13 in Sprint Stores.
