Virgin Mobile USA announces LG Optimus V; $150, pre-paid, available today

LG continues to pedal is low-cost Optimus handset to carriers, complete with an alphabet-soup of surnames. So it comes as no surprise that today, via a press release, pre-paid wireless carrier Virgin Mobile USA announced that it would be offering the LG Optimus V handset effective immediately. The device, which has a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, 3.2 megapixel camera, 3G, and Wi-Fi, will retail for $149.99 and can be paired with one of Virgin’s affordable unlimited data plans (which start at just $25). The phone, which can be purchased at RadioShack or at virginmobileusa.com, will also be able to leverage the carrier’s Virgin Mobile Live streaming music service; the second phone with such capabilities.  Hit the jump for the full press release.

Dell Venue Pro with AT&T 3G gets FCC approval

Dell is having a hard time getting its T-Mobile compliant Windows Phone 7 handset — the Venue Pro – shipped in time for the holidays, but that hasn’t stopped the company from sending at second iteration of the device to the FCC for approval. A Venue Pro sporting WCDMA bands II and V — AT&T’s 850MHz and 1900MHz 3G bands — has crossed the government agency’s desk. If you’re an AT&T, Bell, Rogers, or Telus customer, and fancy the vertical-sliding device, this is encouraging news. While FCC approval doesn’t guarantee a release, it is certainly a step in the right direction. Any customers of the aforementioned carriers interested in the Venue Pro?
