The VS750 will be LG's first smartphone for Verizon
We first heard of the LG VS750 last December, as it is going to be LG's first Windows Mobile smartphone for Verizon Wireless and would be somewhat similar to the GM750. Since then, the VS750 has passed the GSM Certification and the FCC approval, and is now listed on Verizon's own internal site with all the specifications shown, though there is no price, release date, or picture yet. So what all will the VS750 have? It will be a global roaming smartphone with an included SIM card and will support CDMA 1x/EVDO Rev A. 800/1900MHz, and GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/190MHz and UMTS/HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbps. It will use Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional (no word on WinMo 7 update), and have a 3.2" 800x480 pixel WVGA resolution resistive touchscreen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, 3.2MP camera with VGA video recording, Bluetooth, 3.5mm headset jack, 512MB Flash/256MB RAM, and will support microSDHC cards up to 16GB. The VS750 is listed to be blue in color and will measure 4.53"H x 2.20"W x 0.65"D and have a weight of 5.36 oz. Included in the retail package will be a stylus, USB cable, wall charger with international plug adapters for Europe, Asia, and Australia. We'll keep you updated when a release date is announced.

Thanks to a friend for the info!

*UPDATE*
Another source sent us an image of the VS750 and says it should be out by the middle of April.

No word if it'll be upgradeable to WinMo 7? Really? Microsoft said they want WinMo 7 phone to be capacitive touch. That means this is stuck on 6.5. Thats my conclusion.

i agree with warhead, this is a bad move for lg with a resistive touch screen. Is this just an envy touch with windows on it? this is a win for windows, but could be a bad things for lg.

yeah... what about the processor? any word on the speed yet? I hope that it ends up with more ram and a capacitive screen as it has the 3 button requirement for WP7S. Wouldn't be that bad of a phone... IF it was upgradeable to WP7S.

i do... and i prefer resistive touch screen on my TP2 over capacitive touch screen on moto droid... just personal thoughts...

You mind if I ask why? I have a TP2 also but I wish it had a capacitive touch screen. The resistive screen on the TP2 is not that bad but I also have an iPod touch and the accuracy on that is way better.

i was thinking the same thing. resistive screens are terrible.

on tp2, i could pinpoint particular cell on excel mobile using my fingernail... on droid, i couldn't... i guess i'm too used to finger nail pin-pointing on some apps... well, i do HATE res. touch screen on some non-smartphones on vzw like dare, choc 3, env touch... i guess they are just not as sensitive as HTC does... and i do admit that multitouch feature on iphone and droid is just awesome.. too bad i can't have'em on my tp2...

lg just can't get away from that voyager/envy look & feel of phone looks rushed and a mess i can see a lot of younger kids/teens using it not over 20 though

If the screen is anything like the enV Touch and Chocholate Touch, it's not worth it. iPhone and Motorola DROID at least have high-tech glass screens, LG is all about using cheap plastic screens that has horrible accuracy.

LG is supposed to be bringing Android and Series 7 to CDMA later this year, maybe a clue will come this week at the CTIA.

Eh, I kinda like it. But I'll wait to see what else they'll be offering at CITA.

Garbage!!!!! Why release this when no one is going to buy it because everyone knows Win 7 is coming.... This is a waste!!! They should have waited for Win 7, made it capacitive instead of resistive and then it would be sellable..... I work for VZW and I really like most LG phones but this is one dumb !@#%^&* decision on both thier parts!!!!

Windows Phone 7 will be utter garbage!!! No Copy and Paste, no multi-tasking, no MicroSD suport, no non-app store app support. Microsoft is totally copying Apple with their garbage iphhone. Totally locked down device.
