L9 to retail for $50 on contract
T-Mobile has announced pricing and availability on LG's forthcoming 4G Optimus L9 smartphone. The mid-range L9 will be available with a Value voice and data plan and two-year service contract for $50, with customers paying $15 down and $15 per month with T-Mobile's Equipment Installment Plan. The L9 can also be had for $80 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year service agreement.
Lightweight, midrange Android phone
LG recently expanded its Android lineup with the Optimus L9, a midrange handset that is set to launch at T-Mobile. The handset sports a 4.5-inch display and a high-density battery, helping to maintain a thin profile without sacrificing battery life on the carrier's 4G network. The L9 has yet to arrive in stores, but Electronista had a chance to try out the new phone ahead of its formal launch.
