Cricket offers LG Optimus C for $130

Contract-free provider Cricket is now offering its own version of LG's Optimus One smartphone. Called the Optimus C, it comes technically identical to the original, so it gets a 600MHz CPU, 3.2-inch, 480x320 touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The Android 2.2 OS gets some slight tweaks to tailor it to Cricket.

Cricket sells the device for $130 after a $20 web discount and a $50 mail-in rebate. Cricket doesn't require a long-term contract either but users have to get a $55 per month unlimited Android plan.
