First Video and Live images of the LG Dare for Verizon
Several new images and a video of the upcoming LG Dare VX9700 were spotted today on Howard Forums. Information is still sketchy, but the Dare will come with a 240x400 pixel touch-screen, new user interface (as we've previously reported), 3.5mm headset jack, HTML browser, 3.2MP Schneider Kreuznach autofocus camera with LED flash, VGA video recording, Bluetooth 2.0, multitasking (listen to music in background), accelerometer, EVDO Rev A, microUSB port, and support for microSDHC memory cards up to 8GB in size. Expect the Dare to be released during the first half of July.

Actually the Dare is a step above the Prada and even has some features in common with the Viewty, which is the Prada's successor.

Apple fanboys need to stop wildly acusing ever freaking phone with a touch screen of being a copy. Drop it, its old. FYI the dare is a varient of the LG prada which came out long before the iphone, won lots of design awards, then sued apple for copying THEM. So, in a way, it looks like the iphone is yet another Dare copy haha

this will be better than the Instinct

IMHO, the dare has one up with the camera's megapixel but the Instinct uses it's camera to scroll through webpages.. Either way, if a camera is under 5MP.. doesn't have Carl-Zeiss Optics.. and doesn't have a decent zoom.. It doesn't impress me.

I'm glad the I-phone didn't come out for VZW, then i would of been stuck with a madd expensive phone that doesnt even have a camera like this one, it was WORTH WAITING FOR....

Thats true. The iPhone was actually supposed to come out on Verizon but they could not agree so they turned to AT&T. Anyways, the Dare looks sexy.

I work for verizon and got to play with the dare and let me tell you i think by far this phone is better than the iphone. it does the same thing with the pictures when you put it on its side and also when you are either surfing the web or writting a text message. the touch interface i thought was a lot smoother than the voyager which is a plus. and the picture quality was amazing. definately looking forward to getting this phone when it launches

You're referring to the phone's accelerometer, which is, in fact, the same thing used in the iPhone.

Only thing I like better about the iphone is that the screen is bigger... I'll put that aside for a better network and get this phone instead. It still looks hott
