Q: Are there any Android Straight Talk phones?
A: Update: There are now tons of these phones available directly from Straight Talk. Prices ranges from about $20 for reconditioned models to about $400 for more recent models.
You can now also get the iPhone 4 and 5 as well as a Windows phone.

Previously, and answer was no. The closest to an Android- or iPhone-type Straight Talk phone was the Samsung Finesse R810c. This is a touchscreen phone which comes with some widget-like apps including one for Facebook. The Finesse is currently unavailable directly, but you may be able to still get it through Walmart for about $270. Despite it's cool features, the initial price of over $300 probably discouraged widespread adoption by those looking for a prepaid or no-contract cell phone. Since there was no long-term contract, it couldn't be offered for "free" or a very low price compared to current smart phonesphones.
A couple of Nokia smartphones, the E71, the 6790, and the E5, were available for a while, but those, of course, were not Android phones.
