The Optimus T will be available from T-Mobile on November 3 and will set you back $30 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) if you opt for a 2-year service agreement.
This is a great deal, since you’re getting a decently-specced Android smartphone for the price of your average nondescript featurephone. The Optimus T runs Android 2.2 Froyo and comes with a 3.2″ 320×480 capacitive touchscreen, a 3.2 MP camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microSD card slot (a 2GB card will be in the sales package) and all the other standard features you’d expect a smartphone to have in this day and age.
So if you’ve always wanted an Android device but were wary of the pricing of some of the high-end offerings and the paltry specs of some of the better priced solutions out there, the LG Optimus T may just be a perfect fit for you.
One thing to note is that T-Mobile’s Facebook message that announced this seems to no longer be available. This may be due to a Facebook glitch, or it may have gone up prematurely. Either way, at this point there’s no reason to believe the details of the offer aren’t right, and if anything changes, you’ll know it the minute we do.
