4/01/2008 11:30:00 AM Eastern

Las Vegas — LG’s second-generation dual-face clamshell enV2 is a little smaller than its predecessor but sports a slightly larger internal display.






LG’s dual-face clamshell enV (SQUARED) opens horizontally to reveal a QWERTY keyboard and 2.4-inch internal display.

It’s on display at CTIA 2008 and intended for Verizon’s 850/1900MHz CDMA 1x EV-DO network. It features a dialing keypad on its front face, but the handset opens horizontally to reveal a QWERTY keyboard and a 2.4-inch internal display. Pricing wasn’t available at press time, but Verizon has been offering the original enV for $149 with a two-year contract.

Size drops to 4 inches by 2.12 inches by 0.65 inches from 4.6 inches by 2.1 inches by 0.8 inches, with weight dropping to 4.23 ounces from 4.6 ounces and internal screen size growing to 2.4 inches. Dialing keys are slightly larger than before. Carryover features include a 2-megapixel camera, music and a video player, Verizon V CAST music and video services, and Verizon VZ Navigator service.

It’s available in black or maroon.
