It seems like only yesterday we were reporting not one, but two US carriers as the first to offer LG's flexible new smartphone, which is now winging its way to contract-free customers on T-Mobile as well.
Close on the heels of rivals Sprint and AT&T, the so-called "world's first curved, flexible" LG G Flex can be pre-ordered from T-Mobile's website for $0 down and 24 equal monthly payments of $28 when coupled with a Simple Choice plan.
If being one of the first to acquire such a dexterous handset isn't enough for you, T-Mobile is sweetening the deal with six months of free Netflix streaming (a nearly $50 value), which should look quite sharp on the G Flex's curved six-inch OLED HD display.
If a flexible smartphone isn't your thing, T-Mobile also announced an alternative option arriving the same date, resurrecting the tactile feel of real hardware keys - a particularly rare option on today's Android devices.
The LG Optimus F3Q features a QWERTY keyboard that looks like it might have traveled through time to arrive in 2014, coupled with a modest QuickMemo-enabled, four-inch IPS TFT display and 5MP camera to match.
Well-qualified hardware keyboard lovers will be able to wrap their fingers around the F3Q for $0 down and 24 equal monthly device payments of $13 for a grand total of $312, a questionable bargain compared to keyboard-less options such as the Moto G.
T-Mobile isn't offering pre-orders for the LG Optimus F3Q, but it too will land at the carrier's online and brick-and-mortar retail locations starting February 5.
