LG Revolution

You're going to talk down on the LG Revolution. You're going to say some not-so-nice things about it. And that's a shame, really. Because save for one thing, we really don't have much to say about Verizon's third LTE-capable phone in our initial use.

The phone itself? A 4.3-inch black slab with a 5MP camera on the back, 1.3MP shooter out front, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor the aforementioned LTE data and a whole lot of internal memory. Tack on LG's user interface customizations -- which we've long enjoyed -- and you've got yourself a solid little phone.

The one thing that's sure to cause curses from even the most liberal Android nerd? It's been Binged. Like the Samsung Fascinate before it (along with a a couple of other phones not worth mentioning here), Verizon's traded some Google services for Microsoft's Bing. Google Maps? Not there, though you can download it. Google Search? Negatory. You've got Bing.

But if you can live with that, the LG Revolution looks like it's got what it takes to be a solid Android device.
