LG Cosmos 2 dummy units entering Verizon stores; rumored to launch on July 14
The Motorola DROID 3 is up for sale on Verizon's web page with in-store availability expected on July 14, but it seems like there will be one more device that will hit the carrier's shelves on that exact same day. We are talking about the LG Cosmos 2 feature phone, the successor to the LG Cosmos, and its dummy units have reportedly already made it to some of the carrier's outlets.

That is what a tipster of ours shared with us today along with a photo of a LG Cosmos 2 dummy unit. Unfortunately, there is hardly any information available about the handset right now besides the fact that it will pack a 4-row full QWERTY keyboard just like its predecessor did. Its overall dimensions and display size do not seem to have changed much either. Judging by the features that the original LG Cosmos has in stock, we expect to see the Cosmos 2 packing a basic 1.3- or 2-megapixel camera for taking casual photos, a microUSB port for charging and data transfer, Bluetooth connectivity, microSD card slot, and a battery to last more than a few days on a single charge.

Thanks, anonymous tipster!

Come On Verizon! People still use these phones. Equipt them with EV-DO at least. Phones released 4 years ago have more features on them than today's feature phones.

Get an Octane if you want a feature phone with EV-DO.

Its true! My 8300 is better than the feature phones out today. Why should I upgrade to less than what I have?

They only release phones like this so old people and idiots can spend the next 2 years trying to figure them out. "Brrrrrrrr how do I make it louder shhhunny, wait this isn't country kitchen buffet" "how do I turn the phone on? Pffffffffffft"

For my kid who sent 13000 text messages in a month, and for a lot of people, these types of phones make sense. No data plan, does the job. Not everyone needs an iPhone.

It slides open the other way now, the same as the Samsung Intensity 2.

We already have the new Cosmos in stock at my Best Buy. We don't have them on display yet and I'm not sure when they'll be launching but I'm sure most other BB's have them already also. I wouldn't be surprised if BB stores decide to put them out soon simply because we have them ready to go
