Another Android phone, another day. And there was much rejoicing.
This week, it’s the LG Enlighten, an entry-level Android phone running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and supervising it with an 800MHz processor. The almost feature phone has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, supports Adobe Flash 10.1 and has a 3.2-megapixel camera/camcorder in back with autofocus. Let’s also talk about the 2GB MicroSD card, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, GPS and 320×480 capacitive touchscreen. Actually, there’s really not much to talk about.
However, this budget Android phone is priced at $80 on a 2-year Verizon contract after a $50 mail-in rebate. Considering the fact that the HTC Trophy is $50, Xperia Play is $100, Samsung Continuum is $20, Motorola Droid Pro is $50 and several other higher-performing phones are in the same price range online or in-store, it’s exceedingly difficult to justify the purchase of an $80 phone with an 800MHz processor.
The LG Enlighten will be available starting September 29th. Will you be one of the enlightened ones?
