We've talked about it for weeks now, but Verizon has finally made it official with the announcement of three new LG phones: the LG EnV3, LG enV Touch, and LG Glance. All of the phones have text and multimedia messaging with threaded messaging, mobile Web, mobile e-mail, Bluetooth, and GPS. Here's a brief rundown of specifications unique to each phone:
The LG EnV Touch is the most advanced of the lot, and is the successor to the LG Voyager. It has a 3-inch external touch screen similar to its predecessor, as well as a 3-inch internal screen that is not a touch screen. It flips open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, and it has a 3.2-megapixel camera/camcorder with autofocus, flash, and an image editor.
Other features include a full HTML Web browser, visual voice mail support (note: you have to pay a monthly fee to Verizon for this feature), up to 16GB microSD card support, EV-DO Rev. A, and a music player compatible with V Cast Music with Rhapsody. The EnV Touch can also read Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat (PDF) documents.
The LG EnV3 is the sequel to the LG EnV2, and it does indeed look similar to its predecessor. It has the number keypad on the front, with a 1.56-inch external screen and a 2.6-inch internal screen, and it flips open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard.
Features include a 3.0-megapixel camera/camcorder, which is a step up from the EnV2's 2.0-megapixel shooter, high-speed EV-DO (Not Rev. A), a full HTML Web browser, visual voice mail support, a microSD card slot with support for up to 16GB, and a music player with V Cast support.
Last but not least is the LG Glance, which is the most basic of the three. It has a simple candy-bar form factor with a "woven" metal back plate, and it features a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, a speakerphone, and not much else.
The LG EnV3 will be available this Friday, May 29, for $129.99, while the LG EnV Touch and the LG Glance will be available June 5 for $149.99 and $49.99 respectively. All these prices are after a mail-in rebate and a new, two-year, service agreement. The rebate will be in the form of a debit card, which you can use like any other debit card.
