Sneaking under the radar this week are two new feature handsets available on Verizon Wireless. Known as the LG Revere 2 and Cosmos 3, the devices are available for free under a two-year contract. Without one, however, they cost $199.99 and $189.99, respectively.

The LG Revere 2 is a sequel to 2011's Revere . In addition to its clamshell construction, it sports a 1.3-megapixel camera, a 1,000mAh battery that has a reported talk-time of about 7 hours, and Bluetooth 2.1.

Furthermore, it has an external, 0.98-inch display, as well as a 2-inch internal color display that has a 176x220-pixel resolution. It also features a 2.5mm headset jack.

The LG Cosmos 3 also has a 1.3-megapixel camera. However, it features a candy bar design and a four-row sliding keyboard underneath.

As you can guess, the handset is the third installment of the Cosmos family , and it has a 2-inch display with a 320x240-pixel resolution.

Additional features include Bluetooth 2.1, a microSD card slot that's expandable up to 32GB, and data connectivity.
