It’s not supposed to reach Verizon Wireless stores until June 5th, but that hasn’t stopped buyers persuading the carrier’s reps to sell them the LG enV Touch XV11000 a little early. HowardForums member 91ZCpe managed it, and shot some hands-on photos of the twin-display QWERTY clamshell.
Replacing the 18 month old LG Voyager, the enV Touch has two 3-inch WVGA resolution displays; on the outside there’s a touchscreen, while crack the phone open and there’s another, landscape-orientation display plus a QWERTY keyboard. The enV Touch also has a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera with Schneider Kreuznach optics and flash, EVDO Rev.A for high-speed connectivity, Bluetooth and will happily gobble up 16GB microSD cards.
As for the software, that gets a full HTML browser, threaded messaging, a document viewer and access to Verizon’s VCast multimedia services. Prices are expected to be $149.99 (after a $70 rebate) with a two-year contract, $219.99 (same rebate) with a one-year contract, and $409.99 if you buy it outright.
