LG Revere lands among Verizon's ranks; does not break the bank
The first time when we heard about the LG Revere was when we came across that leaked Verizon roadmap about a couple of weeks ago. At that time, the phone was surrounded by mystery leaving us scratching the backs of our heads wondering what kind of device we may be dealing with.

Today, however, things have changed for good as Verizon has officially taken the veil off of the LG Revere. What we have here is a run-of-the-mill feature phone that is aimed at those looking for a budget-friendly handset and who fancy the flip form factor. Nevertheless, being cheap does not mean the the Revere does not hide a few tricks up its sleeve. The device features GPS functionality and is designed to be relatively tough and durable. What you also get is a 2-inch display with a resolution of 176 by 220 pixels, external monochrome display for notifications, 1.3-megapixel camera, a basic web browser, social networking clients, and a 1000mAh battery rated for up to 420 minutes of talk time.

The LG Revere will be available for purchase on Verizon's online store starting today and is expected to land in the carrier's retail outlets nationwide on August 18. Right now, you can grab the phone online for free, as long as you commit to a 2-year contract.
