LG Revolution enters its test period, seems to be well on schedule to be released soon
It's claimed that the LG Revolution, which is set to be the first Verizon handset to offer Voice over LTE (our demonstration here), is in the good, loving hands of some (official) testers, and this may be treated as a massive hint this handset is well on course to be released in Q2 of this year.

Truth be told, we live in a day and age where we can honestly say there is nothing that revolutionary about the LG Revolution's specs - a 4.3-inch screen with a 480 x 800 resolution, single-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, two cameras and Froyo are not specs that leave the mobile world in awe, and yet they are quite respectable, not to mention that the best thing about this handset seems to be its VoLTE feature, which, unfortunately, won't be available at launch, as it is scheduled to go live sometime in 2012.

While we are patiently waiting for this handset to hit the shelves, you are strongly advised to check our LG Revolution hands-ons here and here.

But then Verizon would have to obtain a license from GM and in return put OnStar on the phone.

Got to handle one of these a couple of days ago. As everyone says, nothing special. But at least LG has gotten out of only making low end devices. I like the form factor of this phone better than the Thunderbolt. Once again, though, we are getting an Android device with four dedicated icons on the front screen THAT YOU CAN'T CHANGE. Do manufacturers just ignore consumers completely?

oh no! they skinned it! D:
the only reason i was interested in it is because i thought it would launch with stock Gingerbread or at least stock Froyo..oh well! not anymore. Droid 3 or Bionic for me!
