LG Optimus Slider for Virgin Mobile officially announced

The LG Optimus Slider has popped out of the woodwork again, but this time in a bit more of an official way. Virgin Mobile USA has unveiled the new device on their site, providing with the announcement the fact sheet that some of you out there will probably want to take a look over.

Of course, as we heard before, the LG Optimus Slider isn’t the next high-end device to end all high-end devices. But if you’re looking for a mid-range handset on Virgin Mobile that features a landscape slide-out QWERTY keyboard, then the Optimus Slider may be just the phone for you.

The device will be available through Virgin Mobile USA’s website starting on October 16th for $199.99. It will roll out to RadioShack on October 31st, and then into Target locations on November 6th, if you can wait. The full fact sheet is below.
