Mere moments after Verizon announced the LG Octane, it introduced another feature phone called the Pantech Crux. The Crux is a touch-screen-only phone with a 3-inch display. However, it does come with external media control keys. Features include stereo Bluetooth, microSD support for up to 32GB (it has 1GB internal memory already), social-networking widgets, and of course a virtual QWERTY keyboard. It's also Skype mobile capable, has an HTML Web browser, and is compatible with V Cast Music with Rhapsody.
The Crux will be available starting October 28 for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a new two-year contract.
