LG Cosmos 2 officially announced, can be had for $30 starting July 14th
As if to prove the oft-forgotten these day thesis that not everything is smartphones, Verizon today announced that the humble working class LG Cosmos 2 will be available July 14th, just as we were tipped a few days ago.

A successor to the original LG Cosmos, the handset features a four-row QWERTY keyboard, which automatically makes it an enticing messaging device.

Indeed, Verizon's Mobile Email service will come preinstalled - it allows you to send and receive attachments in various formats, plus you can search your inbox and mail contacts.

The service will be free for the first ten times you use it, then you can continue for $5 a month. There is also a document viewer to check out all these attachments.

The LG Cosmos 2 features a 1.3MP rear camera, 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth, and a microSD card slot. Not much else going for it, but the price is more than reasonable at $29.99, after a $50 mail-in rebate in the form of a debit card. This price, of course, is with a two-year Verizon contract. The LG Cosmos 2 will be available in several colors to spice up its otherwise mundane specs.

Nice! A document viewer on a feature phone! Now that is sweet... I will not need a smartphone in order to carry my docs and spreadsheets around on the go anymore.

This is one of four phones I am researching right now... probably by the end of the year I will definitely need a new phone. If you can tell me anything about your experience with the Cosmos 2 as you use it for longer, I would be glad to hear about it!

Hepresearch, I just got the lg cosmos 2. I will tell you that it is a very nice phone.

The keyboard is perfect. The keys are spaced, not touching eachother, but they are flatter than before, making more space for your finger to land on.

Another nice thing is the front design.

It has a dedicated d-pad, that is nice.

Some bad things.
When you are going through your message history with a person, it takes FOREVER for it to start going through messages.
The vibration does not last long enough, you forget it even vibrated.

good luck picking phones
this is a great phone
