Telstra is now offering the LG Optimus L3 as a pre-paid phone for $99. I found the phone in the July Telstra catalogue but they don’t appear to have it on their website as yet. This is the smallest of the L Series phones that LG launched back at Mobile World Congress, we`ve seen the L7 launch on Optus for $269 and now the L3 is getting its turn. LG are spruiking the L3 as ‘Stylishly Compact’ and with the 3.2″ Screen you can see why.

LG Optimus L3 Specifications :

  • 800MHz Processor
  • 1GB RAM – 2GB Internal Storage with MicroSD Card Slot expandable to 32GB
  • 3.2″ QVGA Capacitive Screen at 320×240 resolution
  • 3.2MP Camera with auto focus
  • Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS & FM Radio
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • 102.6 x 61.6 x 11.85mm @ 109grams
  • Li-Ion/1500mAh

No mention in the advert as to how much credit, if any, is included in the $99 price tag. With those specs the price is definitely classed as a ‘budget’ choice but if you’re in need of a cheap smart phone on the Telstra network this may not be a terrible option to go with, LG has done pretty well on the budget range Optimus One phone so if you need one, check this out.
