If you’re looking for an affordable slider, you may want to check out the newly launched LX290 from LG. You can get this handset via Sprint for just $29.99 with a 2-year contract agreement (after a $50 mail-in rebate).
As for specs, don’t expect anything powerful. Don’t even expect it to stand out from any crowd. It boasts a 1.33 x 1.77 inch QVGA TFT screen, a 1.3MP camera with 2x digital zoom, GPS (Sprint Navigation), Picture Messaging, Bluetooth, NFL Mobile Live, a 2.5mm headset jack and a 950 mAh battery for up to 6 hours of talk time.
