There’s a trio of 720p display phones in the USA now and you have to pick between the HTC Rezound, Samsung Galaxy Nexus and thee LG Nitro HD. However, it’s only the latter that you’ll find in shops, unless I’m mistaking. LG is as usual the first to jump on the bandwagon of new technology, as they did with dual core CPUs and they do now with a HD display.
LG Nitro HD, also known as the LG Optimus LTE comes with LTE connectivity and it’s priced at $249.99 with a 2 year contract on AT&T. There’s also a price tag of $599.99 if you don’t like commitments. The phone offers you a 4.5 inch display with 720p resolution, a 1.5GHz dual core processor, 4GB of internal memory and an 8 megapixel camera at the back with support for 1080p full HD video capture.
LG nitro HD seems to have impressed the folks of The Verge, who praise its feel and camera. The LTE seems to be pretty poor on AT&T, however, or so claim the folks who tested the handset. Is Verizon and its LTE smartphones a better choice? Is AT&T too new in this Long Term Evolution game?
