CTIA shows off what's new in smartphones, accessories, and all things mobile.
The T-Mobile 768 is a good option for those with modest needs and budgets, but don't expect anything more than making calls.
The T-Mobile Sidekick 4G continues the Sidekick's legacy as an excellent messaging device and also serves as a great entry-level smartphone.
Fans of messaging phones will appreciate that the reasonably-priced Optimus F3Q carries out the basics without breaking a sweat. Its unfortunately scant on-board storage is not a deal-breaker.
Though it doesn't have LTE and takes unimpressive photos, the LG Optimus L90 remains a worthy midrange contender that you should look at if you're on a budget.
Available today on T-Mobile and on May 19 for MetroPCS, the entry-level Concord II sports a 4-inch screen, a 5-megapixel camera, and Android 4.3.
