As promo material for the LG Revolution makes it to Verizon, a May 26th rumored launch date nears
You might recall that we recently reported that speculation had centered on a May 26th launch date for the LG Revolution. One bit of new information that makes that date quite possible is that Verizon stores have been receiving promotional material for the phone including the dummy unit of the handset.

The phone will be Big Red's third 4G enabled handset following the launch of the HTC ThunderBolt and the Samsung DROID Charge. Verizon has chosen to price its LTE phones $50 to $100 more than its high-end 3G models. For example, the Revolution is expected to launch at a price of $249.99 on contract, matching the ThunderBolt's contract price tag. This is not much of a surprise considering that both units have a 1GHz single-core processor under the hood and are equipped with a 4.3 inch WVGA display. The DROID Charge was priced at $299.99 with a signed 2 year pact.

The Samsung DROID Charge was the last LTE flavored handset released by Verizon and as you might recall, there was a bit of a delay before the carrier finally got that model and the HTC ThunderBolt out the door. Some have felt that the reason why the Motorola DROID X2 and the upcoming DROID 3 are not LTE devices is because Big Red wanted to get those models out on time without any problems. And of course, the Motorola Etna (aka the DROID Bionic) was canceled partly because of problems getting the device to work on Verizon's LTE pipeline. If the LG Revolution can launch on time, it would be a big boost to the carrier's near term future with its 4G network.

I don't see any other smart phone looking any other different way regardless what OS is on it. The iPhone looks like same, any Android, WP7, hell even Nokia's look the same. Slab style piece of glass, wtf else do you expect could make these look different?

YES. It's finally time to see this phone in person. The other phone I got 2 yrs ago was not what I was wanting.( I have the enV Touch). The LG Revolution is exactly what I want.
