LG is unveiling its next-generation Lotus phone for Sprint, adding a touchscreen to the squarish quick-messaging clamshell with full QWERTY keyboard.
The new Lotus Elite not only adds 2.4-inch external touchscreen but also includes MicroSD slot to accept 32GB memory cards, up from its predecessor's 16GB-capable slot. The new model will also come with 1GB MicroSD card, and larger battery at 1,000mAh, up from 900mAh.
It will retain its predecessor's 2-megapixel camera/camcorder, GPS, IM clients, social-media access, and Sprint email service. Other features include one-click access to frequently used features, threaded SMS and call history, productivity tools, ability to create email attachments, and Sprint services such as Sprint TV and over-the-air music downloading.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
