LG Revolution Coming to Verizon May 26th
It is now confirmed that Verizon will be launching the LG Revolution next Thursday, May 26th. It will be the third (along with the Droid Charge and HTC Thunderbolt) of Verizon's four 4G LTE devices that were showcased earlier this year at CES to hit the shelves.
The Revolution will be the first device loaded with Bing rather than Google Search and will come with Netflix. It is equipped with a 1GHz SnapDragon processor and operates on the Android 2.2 Froyo platform, which is disappointing since Android 2.3 Gingerbread is available. On the plus side it has a large 4.3" touchscreen. Other features include a 5 megapixel rear facing camera with an LED flash and a 1.3 mp forward facing camera. It is capable of recording 720p HD video and comes with an image editor. It supports both HDMI and DLMA so you can play your media wirelessly or with an HDMI cable. It also features wireless charging. It comes with a 16 GB microSD card and supports up to 32 GB.
The LG Revolution will make its debut alongside the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Motorola's Droid X2. There is no word on the pricing as yet, but a leaked photo suggests that Best Buy will be selling it for $700 without a contract.
