You say you want an LG Revolution? Leaked photo suggests May 26th launch
As we reported earlier today, Verizon has announced a May 26th launch for the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY. We have also told you that there is speculation that the carrier plans on launching the Motorola DROID X2 in stores on May 26th. But Big Red might be cranking out at least one more phone on that date. A leaked photo of inventory information for Best Buy suggests that the big box retailer will have its supply of the LG Revolution on May 25th.

Unlike the DROID X2 and the Xperia PLAY, the LG Revolution is LTE enabled and you will be watching data fly at 4G speeds on a 4.3 inch screen with resolution of 480 X 800 pixels. Under the hood is a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The unit has a 5MP shooter on the back that captures video at 720p, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera for self-portraits and video chat. Despite having a name like "Revolution", the phone is loaded with Android 2.2. It would have shaken things up more had LG and Verizon decided to install Gingerbread on the model. While no subsidized pricing information has been revealed, a picture of a Best Buy display shows that the retailer will ask $700 for the phone off contract.

While so far only the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY has been confirmed for a May 26th launch by Verizon, where there is smoke there is fire and everything seems to point to a hat trick of new devices coming to Big Red a week from Thursday, including the carrier's third 4G enabled device-the LG Revolution.

exactly...

i thought this thing would be dual core and atleast have gingerbread os. they seriously made absolutely nothing special about the device and decided to put the highest price tag i've ever seen on a noncontract phone....
Good job LG.
and yet again you slip to the lower bottom of the pack with your dreary attempts at smartphones.

remember this phone was originally going to have a dual-core processor but i think LG decided to go single core the same reason Motorola decided to abort the "Etna", the dual cores aren't playing nice with the 4G radios.

yes, i know, but they make the g2x with 4g (i guess it is just 3g+ though)... i think verizon just doesnt secure the good phones...

yeah, apparently HSPA+ works without a hitch on dual-core phones. even AT&T is getting the dual-core powered Thrill but again that's HSPA+ the addition of LTE is the only thing that makes sense about it not having a dual-core processor. if a Revolution with the same specs as the G2x, stock Android with LTE came to Verizon THAT might would become my next phone.

so what?? bing is bing, and personally, i think better than the giant called google. the fact that i have to have a gay ass gmail and have that BS backing up my info almost makes me want to can the whole idea of having an android phone. the only reason i havent is because apple is worse.. i dont like the idea of plugging my phone into a computer in all the time to get updates that never work right anyways, windows phones are just stupid anyways, and blackberry.. dont even get me started. they dont have 1/4 of the market place the others do and not only that are about as unreliable as anything you can think of, and nokia.. who are they again.. Google is an evil giant, just like walmart.

I don't like MS, to me it does around the same ting with winno as Google does, also you can disable contact, calendar and mail sync on your phone and on some eve skip the whole process

nothing. its nothing more than a search engine. nothing different than dogpile, yahoo, google, or any others. people just need something to bitch about because they either have no life outside of cell phones or own stock in google.

who cares?? I use the navigation system thats in my vehicle. people have been traveling with no navigation for decades before the advent of GPS, so thats not necessary to have. people are becoming less and less self-reliant its sad in a way. it all points to laziness.

best buy is smoking the left handed luckys if they think they can get $700 off contract for and LG product, then again so is anyone that pays that kind of money.

word of warning: do NOT buy a 4G LTE phone if you do not have the LTE network in your area. I have made that mistake twice now. *DUMMY*

I think Google is having a major issue putting Gingerbread on Verizon's 4G devices. None of them come loaded with it; not the Thunderbolt, not the Charge, and now, not the Revolution. Even the Honeycomb-loaded Motorola Xoom isn't 4G capable outta the box. What gives?

And Kudos to LG .... for finally making a Verizon handset that has a camera resolution OVER 3.2 megapixels. Good job. A few years too late, but good job nonetheless.

Haha!
Yeah you would have thought they would have gotten a clue with the LG Ally and especially with the LG Vortex.
