June 8, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

LG and Sprint together have announced that the Optimus F3 smartphone will start shipping online from June 14. Sprint has priced the handset at $29.99, but with a two year contract and a $50 mail-in rebate.

With its unusual price tag, it is clear that the Optimus F3 is a basic device, but it comes with a decent spec list. What makes the device really stand out in the crowd is the addition of Google TalkBack feature in it.

This feature helps those visually impaired users to interact with the smartphone. The instructions, guidance and text all are read back to the user.

The phone also comes with ready to install features like the Accessible Education ID pack for K-12 students who have trouble reading a complete page. It provides access to WebMATH, KhAndroid and IDEAL Equation Finder, a speech recognition-based app.

The phone also includes a bunch of software applications and Web services that remove the clutter of the web pages and provides the most significant information.

According to Dan Hesse, CEO of Sprint, the Optimus F3 has a variety of special features, but the key element of the device is that it empowers those people who have visual disabilities.  

Other specifications of the Optimus F3 include 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch display, front and rear cameras and a 2,460 mAh battery. The handset is pre-loaded with Android 4.1.2 OS and comes with 4G LTE capabilities.
