The entry-level full QWERTY LG Enlighten has appeared here and there, usually bundled with a “coming soon” label, but up until now we haven’t seen it in store. Not anymore - the Enlighten seems to have already shipped to RadioShack, at least this dummy model displayed at the ‘Shack hints that the handset is ever so close to getting released.
We already know that the LG Enlighten is expected to cost you less than a dollar ($.97)when you get it with a two-year contract, at least judging by the Wal-Mart product catalog listing. So what do you get for your hard earned buck? A 3.2-inch screen with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, a modest 800MHz processor powering Android Gingerbread and a basic 3.2-megapixel shooter on the back. Far from stellar, but still catering to the most basic user needs out there.
The handset was first expected to arrive on Verizon come August 25th, but it’s been nearly a month since that date and we’re still waiting. Should come anytime now, and given that you don’t really need to break the piggy bank to get it, is someone out there looking forward to the LG Enlighten?
