See the brand new Samsung Galaxy SII, the best Straight Talk phone available, at the official website. This phone has a really beautiful screen, it runs all the apps you want it to, it has a sleek stylish design, and it has an 8 megapixel hd camera that also captures hd video. I call this phone the no-brainer. See it at StraightTalk.com.
Straight Talk is no stranger to Android phones having already released two Android phones over the last ten months or so. Samsung Galaxy Precedent (now only $129) was the first one. The second one was the LG Optimus Q. The third Straight Talk Android phone, which just appeared on the official website today, is the LG Optimus Black. The Black is by far the best phone to be released by Straight Talk as of yet. It’s the fastest, has the nicest screen, and has a lot of really cool Android features that make this phone feel nothing like a prepaid phone.

The LG Optimus Black (also known as LG L85C) is the highest end Android device released by Straight Talk yet. It is somewhat similar to the Optimus Q also sold by Straight Talk, but is actually quite a bit nicer. It has a larger screen and no pull out keypad, which means that you do all the typing, texting, and browsing using the Black’s intuitive touchscreen. While the Optimus Q has a 3 megapixel camera, the Black has a 5 megapixel camera, able to capture better image quality and video recordings. The camera comes equipped with autofocus and flash to further enhance its power. Learn more about the features of this phone at the official site.
Buy Apps from Android Marketplace
Optimus Black has five home screens so you can easily shelf your apps like you can on an iPhone and other smart phones with touch screens. Since it’s an Android phone, Straight Talk’s LG Black gives you access to the Android Marketplace, where you can find 250,000 different apps, games, and ringtones to use with your phone.
In the picture at left, you can see what the screen looks like when you’re doing a Google search. It’s a very user friendly style of web browsing that utilizes the touch screen. The unlimited plan provides unlimited browsing.

Prepaid Unlimited Android
Since this phone is prepaid, there is no contract and no commitment whatsoever. As long as you pay for your service plan, you can use the phone. The Straight Talk plan that comes with the LG Optimus Black is Unlimited, which means you get unlimited talk, text, web, email, and 411. It’s a pretty all-inclusive plan that pairs very well with an Android-style phone. In other words, if you have an Android phone that gives you access to apps and has a nice camera and touch screen, you’re going to want to be able to use it a lot.
Right now, you get free overnight shipping with any Android phone purchase from Straight Talk. This will save you about $15 to $20 and you will get your phone much faster than by normal snail mail. Get your phone today or learn more about it at the official site. Click the banner below to go there.
LG Optimus Black in Action
It often helps to see a phone you’re thinking of purchasing being put to use and reviewed–especially if you’re going to shop for it online. Below is the LG Optimus Black Android in a video review. Note the processor speed and the brightness of the screen as you watch the video.
Right now you can get free shipping on any phone purchase over $19.99. Save a few extra bucks–you can’t beat that. It’s interesting to see all of these new Android phones and it really foretells a good future in the prepaid business. Soon, we are basically going to be able to choose any kind of plan we want with our cell phones. Well, a guy can dream right? For now, I’m excited that we have so many options to choose from with unlimited plans (after all we all need unlimited plans don’t we?).
ZTE Merit – The Newest Prepaid Android
So Tracfone Straight Talk has been doing a pretty superb job with its latest Android releases. LG Optimus Black is an excellent phone (if you’re in doubt, read the above paragraphs extolling its virtues) and the Samsung Proclaim is a solid Verizon network addition. The people over at Straight Talk felt that they needed to release one more Android phone apparently. So they did. It’s the ZTE Merit, a very nice Android phone that is a steal at $129 brand new. It works with the unlimited plan and has an excellent screen, really fast video streaming speed, and many other great features. Read more at StraightTalk.com
I really like all the things that Straight Talk is doing and the fact that more and more Android devices are being made available. I was getting pretty bored with prepaid phones a couple of years ago, so it’s good to see that there are a whole smattering of new higher end phones. There’s a pronounced shift going on right now. The shift is that most people no longer feel that they need to have a contract in order to have a cool phone. Cricket and Virgin Mobile, both prepaid companies, will shortly have the iPhone 4. It’s a great shift and one that is making me as a prepaid user pretty happy to look forward to the phone releases that will come over the next couple of years. Straight Talk also allows you to use a third party phone, like the iPhone 4S. The way you can do this is by purchasing the appropriate Straight Talk sim card for $14.99, installing it, and then purchasing Straight Talk’s unlimited monthly plan for $45 per month. It’s pretty cool to be able to jump onto this powerful prepaid unlimited plan and use it with an iPhone. Learn more at the official site.
The latest phone on the award winning Straight Talk unlimited plan comes from what you might call an “off” brand. It’s the Huawei Ascend II–I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that this is a crazy brand name. Get used to it because this company is making a big push into the prepaid landscape. At only $99, this Android phone is not going to break the bank. In fact, it’s going to help keep your bank account alive and healthy because the phone is affordable, but so is the monthly plan (only $45 for unlimited service). Get your new prepaid android today.
I really like the new trends in the prepaid industry because now you can get Android phones and other smart phones with prepaid plans. It’s nice to be able to use an affordable unlimited plan with a phone such as Optimus Black because it is a pretty fun phone to use and has a pretty good camera/video recording with auto flash. There are other things that make it a good option like the fact it has a really nice touch screen, but I guess my overall point here is that soon enough we will be able to use almost any phone on prepaid plans. We’ve seen recently that Virgin added iPhones to its lineup and Cricket has done the same. It’s only a matter of time before we have the choice between prepaid and contract with any phone we choose. Straight Talk, Tracfone, and other companies are truly leading the way into the new prepaid and wireless phone frontier.
*There are some very good deals running right now on the official website, which is the best place to find the most up to date deals on Straight Talk phones, Straight Talk coupons, and ways to save. There are some free phones as well as some heavily discounted ones too. The free phones differ from area to area, so it depends on where you live what phones will be available to you. Needless to say, a free phone is a pretty good deal. Another deal I am stoked on is for the Nokia E71 — right now get this phone for only $49! Yes, that is only $49, making this a very affordable prepaid cellular phone. Great phone options from Straight TAlk seem to get better and better, but don’t take our word for it — go directly to the official site and see all of the new phones available.
