Virgin Mobile Announces First NFC Equipped Device, The LG Optimus Elite

Virgin Mobile USA has announced their very first phone to ever come with NFC and Google Wallet, the Optimus Elite by LG. Virgin Mobile is a no-contract carrier that offers unlimited data and messaging plans for $30/month, and with their newest Android device going for only $149.99, they are sure to get some buyers. The Optimus Elite comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and 800MHz processor, and a 3.5″ screen. While we wouldn’t consider this a high-end device, with a no-contract carrier and a low price, it’s sure to be worth what you will be paying. The Optimus Elite is available for preorder now, and will launch on May 15 on Virgin Mobile. Anyone looking for a solid Android device on a carrier that doesn’t rope you in to a contract should definitely check this offer out on May 15.
