Cricket announces the LG Optimus C

The LG Optimus makes its way to yet another carrier, this time for Cricket Wireless. Of course, it's aptly named the LG Optimus C.

The entry-level LG Optimus continues to make the rounds to almost all the carriers with the introduction of the LG Optimus C, with the C standing for Cricket Wireless.

Like its other Optimus counterparts, the Optimus C arrives with Android 2.2 Froyo, a 3.2-megapixel camera, WiFi, 3G, a 3.2-inch touch screen, and a usable 600MHz processor. It's certainly not the best Android phone we've seen, but for $130 without a contract with Cricket Wireless, it's not a bad deal.

At the moment, it seems that the only noticeable carrier that doesn't offer one of these cheap Optimus handsets is AT&T--unless of course it adopts the Optimus T from T-Mobile.
