The New Virgin Mobile USA Phones

Well the rumors are over and Virgin Mobile has rolled out 3 new phones before the holidays.
  • On the lower end is the LG Aloha clamshell/flip phone. This very basic phone for under $30 is the first LG on the Virgin Mobile USA line up. No stand out features, and no outside display. Despite this I would say it is an upgrade to the Oystr, and the white and silver looks much more stylish.
  • Next up is the spruced up version of the UTStarcom's Slice, the new Super Slice. Slightly thinner, better screen, raised and more easy to press buttons, VGA camera, & probably the most exciting of all for VM USA customers, bluetooth. Like the original Slice, it comes in black, red, and white with silver buttons.
  • Last but certainly not least is the Wild Card. The second QWERTY phone on the VM USA line up, most will consider this the best of the VM USA bunch. Like the Super Slice, the Wild Card features bluetooth, dual displays, a 1.3MP camera, and of course a full QWERTY keyboard all for $99.

Of course if you still don't see anything you like, a version of the Motorola W385 is still rumored to be just around the corner, but don't expect it before the holidays.
