Right on cue, Verizon Wireless has today launched the Lucid, a mid-range 4G LTE smartphone from LG. The Lucid packs a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM, a 4-inch IPS screen and a 5MP rear camera. On the software side, there's Android 2.3 Gingerbread with LG's Optimus UI, and the promise of a future upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich in the future. It's nothing too fancy, but for $79 on a 2 year contract (after a $50 mail-in rebate), you wouldn't expect a bleeding-edge device.
We'll have a full review of the LG Lucid in the next week, so stay tuned.
