We’ve previously heard that LG Revolution would be coming to Verizon on May 26th and since that date is tomorrow, we’re back with an update. Turns out that the Verizon stores have been receiving promotional material for the device, including the dummy unit of the smartphone.
This is the Big Red’s third 4G-supporting handset, following HTC ThunderBolt sand Samsung Droid Charge. It appears that the carrier has decided to price the LTE phones $50 to $100 more than the high-end 3G models. The Revolution is supposed to launch with a price tag of $249.99 on contract, just like the ThunderBolt.
Considering the similarity of specs between the HTC LTE model and the Revolution (1GHz CPU, 4.3 inch display) this seems like a logical move. Meanwhile, the Droid Charge costs a bit more, being priced at $299.99 with a 2 year commitment. Wondering what brand will the fourth Verizon LTE phone belong to? Since Moto Droid X2 and the Droid 3 are not LTE devices, we could see another Droid model with this ability or maybe one made by HTC again.
