First Look: UTStarcom Super Slice (Virgin Mobile)

1:01 /

The UTStarcom Super Slice is a decent basic camera phone for Virgin Mobile, and its low price makes it one of the more affordable prepaid Bluetooth handsets on the market.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> I'm Nicole Lee[assumed spelling] Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is the UT Starcom Super Slice from Virgin Mobile. [ Inaudible] it's a very skinny candy bar handset; it is the first Virgin Mobile phone to have Bluetooth which is, finally after all these years, they finally have a phone that has Bluetooth on it. It is a pretty lack luster display but that's okay considering it's a such a basic handset. And at the bottom here you get a pretty nice keypad, very nice and raised above the surface. On the back here you get a VGA camera as well as a self-portrait mirror. Aside from the camera you do get the aforementioned Bluetooth; you do get a speaker phone; typical texting; multimedia messaging; you also get a dedicated key on the phone here to check your Virgin Mobile Account balance which is pretty neat. Like all Virgin Mobile phones it's available without a contract. It's only 59.99. So I think that's pretty good. My name's Nicole Lee and this has been the UT Starcom Super Slice from Virgin Mobile. ^M00:00:59 [ Music ] ^M00:01:00
