LG Cosmos - black (Verizon Wireless)

The Good The LG Cosmos has a solid and simple slider design with a tactile number keypad and a roomy QWERTY keyboard. You also get a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and GPS. Call quality is great as well.

The Bad The LG Cosmos lacks corporate e-mail support, and don't expect a music player or EV-DO on here.

The Bottom Line The LG Cosmos makes a great choice for an affordable entry-level messaging phone for Verizon customers.

LG Cosmos - black (Verizon Wireless)

LG's messaging phone offerings for Verizon Wireless continues to grow. There was the LG enV and the LG Voyager series of handsets, and at CTIA 2010, Verizon welcomed the newcomer LG Cosmos to the family. It is essentially a rejiggering of the LG Rumor 2 and is therefore an entry-level product. It doesn't come with a music player or EV-DO, but it does have your basic messaging features, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and quick access to popular social networks like Twitter and Facebook. The Cosmos is available for a very affordable $29.99 with a new two-year service agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate.

Design
We weren't kidding when we said the LG Cosmos looks like a remake of the LG Rumor 2. They both look like candy bar handsets on the front, but a full QWERTY keyboard slides out to the right for messaging. Measuring 4.41 inches long by 2.05 inches wide by 0.67 inch thick, the Cosmos even has almost the same dimensions as the Rumor 2. Still, the Cosmos looks a tinier bit better than its Sprint counterpart. Instead of a rather cheesy chrome border, the Cosmos is wrapped in a sleek and shiny black plastic. At 4.4 ounces, it feels sturdy yet lightweight.
