As we suspected, Verizon Wireless announced today that the LG Revolution will be available starting May 26 for $249.99 with a two-year contract.
The Revolution is the carrier's third 4G smartphone (following the HTC Thunderbolt and Samsung Droid Charge) and offers a 4.3-inch WVGA touch screen, a 5-megapixel camera and front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, and mobile hot-spot capabilities. The handset will ship running Android 2.2 but note that it will use Bing search and maps.
Other features include a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, Bluetooth 3.0, Swype, HDMI output, and a preinstalled 16GB microSD card.
The LG Revolution will have some company tomorrow, as Verizon is also launching the Motorola Droid X2 and Sony Ericsson Xperia Play in stores on Thursday. Decisions, decisions.
Samsung's next phone has the tall task of making people forget about the Note 7. Here's what the S series needs.
