Virgin Mobile Flare: not bad for 30 bucks

Friday, April 24, 2009

Virgin Mobiles slowly (and we do mean slowly) moving into the 21st century with its ultra-cheap prepaid offerings; in the past they’ve frequently foregone features most of us consider standard like Bluetooth and external displays in an effort to keep the sticker shock to a minimum, but thanks to the wonders of modern technology, Virgin’s getting close to being able to offer a circa-2008 feature set in 2008. Here we have the Flare courtesy of LG, a glossy lil’ flip that serves up a color screen out front, Bluetooth, speakerphone, and mobile web access for a penny shy of $30 — contract-free. The FCC filing (it’s the LX175) reveals a lack of EV-DO, but seriously, what do you expect for the price?

This is a preview of Virgin Mobile Flare: not bad for 30 bucks.
