Virgin Mobile and Samsung unveiled today two new wallet-friendly handsets for its PayLo portfolio. The Samsung Montage, the more advanced of the two, is a feature phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 2-megapixel camera, e-mail and Web access, and threaded text messaging. It also supports Bluetooth and up to 32GB of external storage.

The aptly named Entro is a simple flip phone with texting capabilities, speakerphone, and Internet access.

Samsung's Entro goes on sale starting today for $14.99, and the Montage becomes available in stores on August 20 for $49.99.
