LG Lotus Elite

The LG Lotus Elite is a messaging phone with a unique square design. It is sleeker and sexier than the first LG Lotus is, and we like the stunning red color of this particular model.

External touch screen

The LG Lotus Elite has a 2.4-inch external display that is also a touch screen. You can use this to access messages, contacts, and a photo slideshow without opening the phone.

Slim

Though it seems a little chunky, the LG Lotus Elite is actually quite slim, measuring around 0.75 inch thick when closed.

Tattoo and camera

The LG Lotus Elite is available in this striking red design, which is also decorated with a floral tattoo. The phone also has a 2-megapixel camera, which is visible thanks to the little cut out in the upper-left corner.

Camera on the inside

When you open up the LG Lotus Elite, the camera will face you, which makes it much easier to take self-portraits.

The LG Lotus Elite has three dedicated shortcut keys that are centered on messaging. They are Social, Email, and Text. The Social key can be mapped to one of three social networks: Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace.
