T-Mobile has started offering the LG Optimus L9, a decent phone for those who need a phone but do not want to burn a hole in their pockets. While the performance of the Optimus L9 is not going to set any benchmark records, it is still a pretty amazing phone. It is on sale for just $80 for a 2 year contract (with $50 mail in rebate).
Specs include Qualcomm MSM8225 dual core processor clocked at 1GHz, 4.5 inch screen, 960 x 540 resolution, 1GB RAM, 4GB flash, 2150mAh battery and 5 mega pixel camera. It runs Android 4.0 ICS. It is just 0.36 inch thick and lightweight. [T-mobile L9 link]
