After hiding out on Virgin Mobile's Web site for more than two weeks, the new Samsung Slash officially joined the carrier's lineup today. The Slash is the first Samsung handset for Virgin Mobile, which has long concentrated on Kyocera and UTStarcom models.

Offered at $79, the Slash has a thin slider design. The functional feature set includes Bluetooth, voice dialing, a speakerphone, messaging, a VGA camera, MP3 ringtones, and a wireless Web browser. We'll have a review model later in the week, so stay tuned for a full report.
