LG Optimus Slider (Virgin Mobile) Video Transcript
-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for cnet.com, and this is a First Look at the LG Optimus Slider. The LG Optimus Slider is very similar to the other Optimus phones, but it does have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It has a very nice 3.2-inch colored display here. It ships with android 2.3 Gingerbread. The user interface is fairly vanilla android. You will see a complicated manufacturer skin here. Underneath the display, you do get the usual android shortcut keys for the menu, home, back, and search functions. On the back is a 3.2-megapixel cameral. The phone shows with the usual WiFi, GPS, and bluetooth features. The LG Optimus slider retails for around $200, but that is without a contract. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the First Look at the LG Optimus slider for Virgin Mobile.
The LG Optimus Slider on Virgin Mobile offers a 3.2-inch screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and a four-row QWERTY keyboard for all your texting needs.
The LG Optimus V is a great entry-level Android smartphone if you want to go the prepaid route with Virgin Mobile.
A slide-out QWERTY keyboard isn't what sets this Android Gingerbread smartphone apart; that honor goes to Sprint ID, a first for a Boost Mobile handset.
The Samsung Transform Ultra brings you Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a QWERTY slider, and Mobile ID packs, without a contract.
This tiny little Android handset packs a surprising punch, with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the HTC Sense UI, and a 5-megapixel camera. It's now available prepaid without a contract from Virgin Mobile.
While not as advanced as the Optimus handsets on other carriers, the Optimus M is still a great entry-level Android phone for MetroPCS customers.
Virgin Mobile puts a multimedia spin on its phone lineup with the sleek but ultimately disappointing Kyocera Slider Sonic.
The LG Optimus S is an affordable yet full-featured Android smartphone for Sprint.
This messaging phone is more than meets the eye, with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a microSD card slot, and a camcorder. However, there are some design flaws with the prepaid t369.

LG Optimus Slider (Virgin Mobile) Review
The good: The LG Optimus Slider has a spacious keyboard, little to no bloatware, and a responsive touch screen.
The bad: The LG Optimus Slider is bulky, even as a slider phone. Camera quality is poor.
The bottom line: If you like a real keyboard on a no-contract, reasonably priced handset, the LG Optimus Slider is a good contender. Just remember its low specs and boxy build.
