Rogers to offer the LG Optimus L3 for $124.99 outright

Canada’s Fido and its parent company Rogers Wireless will soon launch the LG Optimus L3. As you probably know, it’s a low-end device, announced alongside Optimus L5 and Optimus L7 at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. So why do talk about it?

That’s huge, potentially turning a ton of feature phone owners into Android smartphone users. If you, however, want to get LG’s baby with a contract, the price is a single cent with a two-year commitment. With phones like these, we prefer the off-contract deal more…
