The Samsung Slash officially launches with Virgin Mobile.

Virgin Mobile

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.
