As expected, Bell has released the LG Optimus L5 for a respectable $199.95 outright. This runs OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (no indication of an upgrade to Jelly Bean yet), 4-inch display (320 x 480), 5MP camera, HD voice, NFC capabilities, 800 MHz processor, 9.8mm thin, 120 grams. Good specs for an entry-level handset.

    Put a decent screen on it and then we’ll talk

    The 800mhz processor is quite weak as well.

    But no wonder they price it at $200 no term. Get what you paid for!

    “Good specs for an entry-level handset.”

    800mhz (okay, i guess….), 5MP camera (certainly decent), HD Voice & NFC (oh cool, quality calling and near-field communications…. a bit unnecessary for a $200 entry-level device)…. but 320×480 4 INCH DISPLAY? That just ruins it for me… in an age of retina displays where anything below 200ppi is unacceptable in a below 5 inch display, this can’t bode too well :S

    does anyone know if you can unlock this from bell and use it on chatr?

    Too bad the resolution is so low. It’ll look like you bought the NES phone.

    The HTC One V is $225 outright from Koodo. Twice the phone for $25 more.
