Looks like a step up from the Devour for an entry level Android smartphone. Price point is right and it really is no shock that itson Verizon. Verizon usually gets LG's best/newest phones first.

it does look like a great phone....I had an LG flip way back in the day and it was a beast..he he. LG makes quality products and I am sure this will do ok. If VZW didnt have the Incredible I would of maybe considered this as my first Android phone. Reminds me a little of my BB Storm with a slide out...lol. Dont miss them days!!!

it looks to be a great phone, while i would have trouble with the physical keyboard...I'm now using touchscreen only but the keyboard looks like it includes the android 4 main buttons in the physical keyboard which is neat.

Been waiting a long time for a Verizon Android LG phone but I still going to hold out for a later screen version. Waiting is getting old luckily my current phone still does everything I need it to right now.
