Today is a pretty significant day if you are a Verizon customer. The US carrier is launching no fewer than four handsets today, with each one having it’s own special advantages compared to each other. One of those handsets is the LG Revolution and we want to know just how many of you are planning to pick one up today.
The LG Revolution is arguably the pick of the bunch today, since it is Verizon’s newest handset which has support for their new 4G LTE network. Just for your reference, the other three handsets are the Motorola Droid X2, the HTC Trophy and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.
As for the Revolution though, it can be yours to take home for $249.99 on a two-year contract with Verizon. The price itself is quite interesting, as it falls in line with the pricing for the HTC Thunderbolt which was $249.99 and was Verizon’s first 4G LTE phone, but it is $50 cheaper than the recently released Droid Charge handset, which was Verizon’s second 4G LTE handset.
Does that mean the upcoming Droid Bionic will be priced at $299? – Let’s hope not. At $249.99 though, do you think the LG Revolution is worth your money? Specs include a 4.3-inch display screen, a single core 1Ghz processor, Android 2.2 Froyo (yes really) and a 5 megapixel rear camera with 1.3mp front camera.
As you can see, the specs are not too great, and you may feel that $249 is a bit pricey, especially when excellent handsets such as the HTC EVO 3D will launch on Sprint for $199 on contract.
How many of you are planning to pick up the Revolution, and how many of you think it’s a rip off?
