Samsung Slash at Virgin
Virgin Mobile today made good on a recent teaser with an official release of the Samsung Slash. The slider is now known to sit slightly above most of Virgin's offerings with a VGA camera and Bluetooth; it also provides MP3 ringtone support as well as preloaded games and an extra-large 499-entry phonebook. Talk time, however, is short at a rated 3.5 hours.
The Slash is marketed chiefly on its price and should be available soon through the company's online store for $80. Stores should also offer the phone as of today.
