Tracfone Koolness (Thanks Chris!)

Tracfone now, secretly, has their three new phones available online. Though they're out of stock, we now have better specs on the phones, and exact prices...

The LG CG225 (wierdly called the LG 225 by Tracfone though a phone by the same name is available for Sprint\STi Mobile\etc.), available at http://www.tracfone-orders.com/direct/tr/itemdetl.jsp?prod=3554, is priced at $80. Not bad considering it's the first camera flip phone Tracfone has ever had...and the second cameraphone. So that's why the Motorola c261 went down from $80 to $40 in such a comparatively short period...

The LG C1500, called merely the "1500" by Tracfone on http://www.tracfone-orders.com/direct/tr/itemdetl.jsp?prod=3551, is priced at $60. Which is fine because it is an upgrade to the Motorola v176 due to its external display. It does, however, have a smaller internal display...

Last if we're measuring by expense is the Motorola w370, at $50. Available at http://www.tracfone-orders.com/direct/tr/itemdetl.jsp?prod=3545, it's decidedly the most basic of the phones being introduced, feature-wise, but its screen looks to be the largest of the phones (albeit sacrificing an external screen for simple LED indicators), and its style seems impeccable. For $50 you really can't complain, seeing as how the pudgier Motorola v176 had similar or less features for $10 more...or should I say has, since these phones aren't out yet?

Which reminds me...I have to figure out how to get these phones...seeing as how Tracfone is sick of me buying from them ;)...
