Following in Sprint's footsteps, Virgin Mobile is getting Google Wallet thanks to the LG Optimus Elite.
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone is Virgin Mobile's first phone with support for Google Wallet and NFC, or near field communication, a short-range communication protocol similar in concept to Bluetooth.
The silver LG Optimus Elite, which also features a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera, and a 800MHz processor, goes on sale May 15 for $149.99, but preorders begin today.
