Pre-orders for the LG Optimus Elite are up now. If you’re a Virgin Mobile customer and want a decent budget Android phone, this may very well be it. Surprisingly, this little guy comes with NFC and Google Wallet support. It’s news to me that any non-Nexus has Wallet support. That’s great for Virgin Mobile customers!
Unfortunately, this phone packs specs that are very low end. It comes with Gingerbread 2.3.7, a 3.5″ HVGA screen, a 5MP camera with flash, and an 800 MHz processor. Not quite sure why they chose the Elite moniker for it. But it not a bad phone by any means. Head over to the Virgin Mobile site to pre-order it.
