T-Mobile announced the availability of the LG dLite Wednesday, making it the third LG handset in T-Mobile's stable (the other two are the Sentio and the GS-170).

The dLite is quite the attention-grabber, with programmable light effects, courtesy of color LEDs along its side and an interesting dot matrix display on the front. It has a 2.8-inch internal display, support for T-Mobile's 3G network, e-mail, and visual voicemail. It's available in bubblegum pink and electric blue for $50 after a mail-in rebate.
