LG Revolution 2 could be coming to Verizon as the LG Spectrum
So what has become of the LG Revolution 2?  Popping up only three months after the launch of the first-gen model, the Revolution 2 was rumored to offer a 4.5 inch screen; the device quickly dropped out of the public eye and has been unheard from since. Now, a couple of screenshots show a device called the LG Spectrum in Verizon's computer system.

While there is no smoking gun link to the LG Revolution, note how the LG Spectrum is listed right under the former handset on the first screenshot.  Like the LG Revolution, the LG Spectrum is an LTE enabled device and adds global functionality. As far as a launch date and pricing is concerned, we honestly have a paucity of information about this device to work with. What we do know is that the LG Spectrum appears to be making its way through that maze-like process that leads to a launch from Verizon at the end of the road. So regardless of whether or not it is the sequel to the LG Revolution, a new handset will apparently be rolling out from Verizon and that is a good thing.

One of my friends owns a Revolution and it's while hardly top end it sure isn't the turkey that most people label it as. It runs decent for what she does and has had a couple of updates with Gingerbread on deck. At some point, LG needs to get people excited for something other than their 2nd tier Optimus series if it wants to compete with it's countrymen in Samsung. Maybe this is it?

I don't care what some people say, since I switched from Nokia to LG a few years ago, I've had five different LG handsets, two being smartphones, and all have been fantastic. More people than not are experiencing "operator error", and that's their own faults. Plus, I'd rather have a company perfect an update instead of rushing it to a device, and having the newest OS on day of release isn't a make-it-or-break-it thing for me.

Latest rumor, this might debut......New Years Eve time or last week of the year. LG might debut 2 other phones too, most likely just entry level phones. One of them is slide out qwerty version of the Revolution.
