So only hours ago did I post a review on the LG Optimus, now news has arisen thanks to our friends at Techanist, that it will be available through Optus from the July 23rd, that being when the Telstra exclusivity deal on the Optimus ends.
I quite like what Optus will do in terms of plans. They will release it on the $19/mo Max Cap which includes $70 of credit. This is the type of plan the Optimus is made for, not a $49 plan or $509 outright. Take note Telstra, you have a lot to learn. Hit the break for a plan comparison.
