-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for cnet.com, and this is a First Look at the LG Optimus Slider.
The LG Optimus Slider is very similar to the other Optimus phones, but it does have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
It has a very nice 3.2-inch colored display here.
It ships with android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The user interface is fairly vanilla android.
You will see a complicated manufacturer skin here.
Underneath the display, you do get the usual android shortcut keys for the menu, home, back, and search functions.
On the back is a 3.2-megapixel cameral.
The phone shows with the usual WiFi, GPS, and bluetooth features.
The LG Optimus slider retails for around $200, but that is without a contract.

This has been the First Look at the LG Optimus slider for Virgin Mobile.
