Other carriers must be throwing Verizon the nasty eye now that it is a carrier with not one or two, but three phones with HD displays and LTE connectivity onboard.
The announcement of the LG Spectrum
, which will land on Big Red in ten days, makes the already daunting task of picking a smartphone on Verizon downright formidable now.
That is why we are sizing the HD trio up for you in terms of sheer spec numbers, hoping to paint a clearer picture out of the "too much choice" phenomenon that is shaping up at the nation's largest carrier.
The LG Spectrum, Samsung Galaxy Nexus
and HTC Rezound
share a lot in common at first look, like HD displays, LTE connectivity, and 1080p video capture, yet are pretty different when you come down to the details. Let the numbers do the talking here, but the LG Spectrum marks a welcome change in Verizon's high-end LTE pricing scheme, coming at $199 at launch.
