The rumors of a new LG enV3 and a LG enV Touch are becoming hot and heavy now, especially with these new leaked pictures on Phone Arena. The LG enV3 is, as expected, the successor to the LG enV2 messaging phone from Verizon Wireless. The enV3 will have a 3.0-megapixel camera, an LED flash, a QWERTY keyboard, a larger external display, stereo speakers, Bluetooth, and a microSD card slot.
Messaging fans, rejoice! At long last, Verizon Wireless has announced the availability of the LG EnV(2), the long-awaited sequel to the LG EnV. It is, as you can see, a slimmed-down version of the original, but it still has a pretty roomy keypad and easy controls. Our only complaint is that its features (which include a 2-megapixel camera, a music player, and EV-DO support) don't stand out too much from the first EnV. Check out our in-depth review and let us know what you think. The LG EnV(2) is available for $129.99 after a two-year service … Read more
We just received the LG enV(2) in-house and are currently putting it through the rigors of the review process. As you'll recall, the enV(2) is the true successor to the LG enV VX9900--we originally thought it was the LG Voyager VX10000, but the Voyager turned out to be a complete makeover rather than an incremental facelift. Our thoughts on the enV(2) haven't changed much from our initial hands-on at CTIA; it's a slimmed-down version of the original enV for sure, and we especially like its sleeker, candybar external look and easy-to-use controls. After … Read more
LG had a very impressive showing at CTIA this year, especially with the LG enV(2) for Verizon Wireless and the LG Vu for AT&T. The LG Vu is the star of the show, with a full 3-inch touch screen interface that makes it a great device to debut AT&T's new live TV service called AT&T Mobile TV. It has a full HTML browser, a 2.0-megapixel camera, a music player, plus 3G support and access to AT&T Mobile Music and AT&T Video Share. The LG enV(2) is … Read more
After we were done giving the LG Vu the once-over, we shifted our attention to the LG enV(2) to see how different it really is from the the original enV. The answer: a lot. Measuring 4.0 inches by 2.13 inches by 0.65 inch, it's smaller, slimmer, and just overall better looking than the first enV, especially its front face. Yeah, we're not too thrilled with the tiny front display, but it provides a lot more room for the keypad, which is surprisingly roomy. The internal screen gets a sizable bump to 2.4-inch over … Read more
A day ahead of its scheduled announcement, Verizon decided to spill the beans and put out a press release announcing the LG EnV2, which is the genuine successor to the LG EnV of years past. As we mentioned awhile ago, we originally thought the Voyager was the EnV successor, but as it turns out, the Voyager is in a completely separate class. Which is fine, since the LG EnV2--yes, we find the parentheses a little odd as well--is a pretty good-looking phone in its own right. Smooth and slim, it mimics the original EnV design with a clamshell look when … Read more
We once thought the LG Voyager (which won an Editors' Choice, by the way) was the successor to the much-beloved LG enV, since both of them sported a flip-out QWERTY keyboard. But it seems like we may be wrong--the LG VX9100, which may be dubbed the LG enV2, looks to be the true successor to the LG enV. Indeed, the VX9100 (or enV2) has that same candy bar look when the phone is closed and doesn't have the fancy touch-screen display like the Voyager. Engadget Mobile shows off a few pics of a black and maroon version, and we … Read more
Though Verizon Wireless isn't announcing the LG Venus and Voyager at CTIA, the cell phones are making guest appearances. I got a few minutes to play with both handsets, the first time I've seen them in the flesh, and I all I can say is, "wow." Both the Venus and Voyager sport throughly lovely designs that will do a lot to bring more style to the formerly stodgy Verizon. Yes, they're a bit on the hefty side, but they back up their bulk with sleek and shiny profiles.
Yep, LG has finally come out with the most appropriate color for the EnV--green. Or as it looks like to me, army green. It's an exclusive to Circuit City stores though, for $79.99 after a $50 rebate (Quite a price drop from $149). The specs are about the same as the original LG EnV, so no rush to get this if you're not a fan of the color.
If you're tired of the black hue of most gadgets, you might be interested in the LG EnV's newest shade of orange. It's otherwise the same device as the original black, but at least it'll be a tad more stylish. Though we can't help but think that green would've been a better fit for the "EnV" name. It's currently available for $149.99 with a two-year contract.
