BASKING RIDGE, N.J. –
Verizon Wireless expanded its portfolio of 4G phones on May 26 with the launch of its third model, the LG-made Revolution at $249.99 with two-year contract.
It follows the March 17 launch of HTC’s ThunderBolt 4G at $249 and the April 28 launch of the Samsung-made Droid Charge at $299.
The launch brings Verizon closer to keeping a promise made at January’s CES to offer four LTE-equipped phones in the first half, but it’s not likely that the fourth – Motorola’s Bionic — will be available in the first half as planned. Recently, Motorola said its Bionic has been delayed until the summer.
LG’s Revolution is promoted as the first Android smartphone preloaded with the Neflix application, allowing Netflix subscribers access to movies and television shows.
The device features Android 2.2, 4.3-inch WVGA 800 by 480 capacitive LCD touchscreen, virtual QWERTY keyboard, 1GHz single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and16GB of embedded memory.
