Cannot live without a full QWERTY keyboard on your smartphone? Take a look at the new Alcatel Venture from Virgin Mobile. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread-powered handset will run you just $99 out of pocket, yet offers a 2.8-inch touchscreen display; a 2-megapixel camera for video and pictures; 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity; and a microSD card slot for additional data storage. Preorders are now being accepted for the device, which will be available on March 15. Update: It has been brought to our attention that the Venture is not made by ZTE as originally reported, but is actually made by Alcatel One Touch and distributed by PCD. We apologize for any confusion on the matter.source: Virgin Mobile USA
