UTStarcom Slice Phone

Customers of Virgin Mobile have until recently had a comparatively lackluster selection of phones, but a recently discovered product leak promises a better if not necessarily unique option. Bearing an uncanny similarity to Motorola's SLVR, the Slice has recently been discovered on Circuit City's product pages. UTStarcom, normally a producer of smartphones, is responsible for the candybar design and has clearly targeted it at the lower prices associated with Virgin's prepaid service: its primary feature is 32MB of memory, with neither Bluetooth nor a camera. Without the added cost of this technology, however, the Slice is currently priced at $50 and requires only Virgin's standard prepaid service to be activated. Circuit City says it will be shipping the new cellphone by next week.
