[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> It may look funky and square, but the LG Lotus is actually one of Sprint's best handsets for texting I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a First Look at the LG Lotus. As you can see here is a very unique square shape. A very nice satin finish here. It comes with a1.4-inch external display and underneath the external display are the external music player keys for the music player in here. There's also the 2.0-megapixel camera here. Open it up and you do get at very nice 2.4-inch internal display. It's very vibrant. It's around 260,000 colors. It's very rich as well. Underneath that is one of the best keyboards I've ever had the pleasure to use. As you can see, it's a full QWERTY keyboard made for texting, so the LG Lotus is a perfect texting phone. As for the screen itself you also get Sprint's patented One Click navigation shortcut system. At the bottom of the screen here you do get an array of 8 shortcut tiles and you can sort of customize the shortcuts to your favorite applications. Aside from the texting, the LG Lotus also has a ton of features. It comes with Sprint's Power Vision, which means it has EV-DO. It also has a megapixel camera, music player streaming video. There's a stereo Bluetooth as well as GPS services. The LG Lotus is available right now for $150 with a 2-year service agreement. My name is Nicole Lee this has been the LG Lotus from Sprint. ^M00:01:31 [ Music ]
