Cricket to get LG Optimus C this week

There has been something of a rush of Android handsets to prepaid carriers, and Cricket has been among the more aggressive. This week they’re getting another Android, the Optimus C. This is part of the Optimus One series, which Virgin Mobile has with the Optimus V and MetroPCS has with the Optimus M. That probably pegs the price around $199.99. The device features a 3.2 inch touchscreen, Android 2.2, and other mid-level features. Look for it on Thursday the 17th.
