Another budget phone for Virgin Mobile has entered the arena: the slide-out Samsung M575.

We've seen it before as Virgin Mobile's Samsung Restore. This no-contract QWERTY slider has a 2.4-inch LCD screen, a 2-megapixel camera and camcorder, and threaded text messaging and e-mail.

It also has a browser, Bluetooth support, a music player, and a microSD card slot that can hold up to 32GB external storage.

The 3G-capable M575 sells for $79.99, starting today, with text-and-talk plans that begin at $30 per month.
