Verizon announces the entry-level LG Enlighten, available Sept. 29


This would be a great phone for my son if they would get that $50 a month prepaid plan ironed out (and actually included some base model smartphones on it).

I am not sure what the point of an "entry level" smartphone is on a major carrier??? Sure you don't have to pay much for the device itself or maybe it is even free but.......you are still liable for $720 in data charges over the life of a 2 year contract ($30 * 24)!!! Ouch!

Agree they should make this a feature phone and it would sell a ton. Not everyone wants a data plan and their selection of non smart phones is pretty lacking.

It is good to see the entry level phones boosted to specs better than the OG Droid and Eris. The Eris was so laggy, but I bet with an 800MHz CPU it's not too bad. Yeah I know the OGD had a bigger screen, I'm just talking about the guts.

There is something seriously wrong with that keyboard - the bottom row is just hideous. Otherwise, this thing looks pretty good for an add-a-line account or a prepaid account.

Hey isnt that a Samsung Impression with hard keys. Oh no wait..its a LG Enlighten...no wait, its a Samsung Impression with hard keys. I'm confused.
