Well, it looks like all the rumors we wrote about for the launch of LG”s all new, customizable Versa were spot on. Today LG and Verizon released the Versa right on schedule, for the price we already knew of $199.99.
To recap, what makes this phone so cool is the fact that you can pretty much customize a phone very similar to the popular all touchscreen LG Dare, to be whatever type of phone you want. Want to add a game pad? WiFi? Just buy the add on and pop it in. They even throw in a keyboard to attach if you want it.
The one possible down side to all these add ons is that you need to remove the battery cover in order to add them on, and some of them — like the keyboard — add some size and thickness to the phone which may not be for everyone. Regardless, from all the early reviews we’ve seen online, this phone really looks to keep up to the title we gave it when we first wrote about it– the coolest phone ever!
You can get the LG Versa in Verizon Stores and Verizon’s site (here).
For a full review of the specs, hit the more link, but before you do that, we gotta ask… is this a phone you’re gonna get, and if you do, feel free to post your thoughts on it as a comment on this post, or would you rather go for a phone like the LG Dare (a cheaper version of a phone very similar to the Versa, just without the ability to add different types of add ons), or a phone like the LG Voyager where the keyboard and touchscreen are both already built in. Let us know in the comments.
For all of you on AT&T and Verizon who want a nice, stylish, phone yet don’t want to pay a lot of $$$ for an iPhone 3G or LG Dare- today you should pay a little attention because this may interest you. Motorola just spilled some info on a few of their future phones for AT&T and Verizon– all of which fit the stylish, functional and relatively inexpensive description very well.
As Sprint, Verizon and AT&T continue to grew their touchscreen phone offerings, T-Mobile looks to jump in and make a BIG splash. What we talking about? Hit the More link to find out.
Ok, so over the last week or so we were lent an LG Chocolate 3 for Verizon (by a TeenTechBlog friend who would prefer to remain Anonymous 🙂 ). We put it through its paces- you know made some texts and calls, checked some V Cast, etc., and to summarize this phone in two words: Very Good. To find out what we liked and didn’t like- as well as more detail besides the words Very Good, hit the more link.
Motorola Rokr E8
Wow, this summer is really the season for new, innovative, and often touchscreen, cell phones– iPhone 3G, LG Vu and Dare, Samsung Instinct… the list can go on (and can be read about here). However, one particular carrier is noticeably absent from that prestigious list: T-Mobile. Not to fear, though, the Motorola Rokr E8 is here– well on July 7 it will be, according to Cnet’s blog Crave— and its generating a lot of excitement; it already won top awards at the Consumer Electronics Show this year, including the People’s Voice award and best upcoming cell phone product (discussed by us earlier). But this phone is very different from the previous models we’ve discussed in the past for this summer…ITS NOT A TOUCHSCREEN! Yes, you heard me. Rather, this phone attempts to become the ultimate Music player Cell phone, or what we call the Mp3 phone for the sake of conciseness. Ever. Hit the more link for details!!
Here is one of the big trends in Cell Phones right now- touchscreens. We all know of one of the bigger leaders in this group- AT&T with the LG Vu (that we covered here), and Apple’s iPhone (the new 3G model coming July 11; we will hope to have al the info on that covered for you tomorrow)- but what about Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile, do they get in on this touchscreen madness? The answer to that is yes, and we got some info for you on some of the current and future touchscreen phones for all these groups.
