UPDATED: First look at the LG Glance VX7100 for Verizon
We first heard of the LG VX7100 back in February, and then a month later found out it would be called the Glance. Not much else was known until recently, since the enV3 and VX11000 (Voyager´s successor) used to grip all the attention. It´s the first time we´ve gotten a picture of the upcoming LG Glance and we are able to confirm that it´s going to be a thin candy-bar style phone. This is quite unusual of LG, since most of their recent devices are flip phones, sliders, and touchscreen devices. We hear the Glance will be a budget-to-mid-level device, positioned under the VX8360, as it lacks EVDO (making it only 1X compatible), but no matter it will still feature VCast music with Rhapsody support. No word´s been breathed as to neither what its release date, price, display or camera resolution are. We'll keep you posted once we dig out more info.

Thanks to a friend for sending this in!

*UPDATED 4/23/09*

Our friend was kind enough to find out some more information about the Glance. The display is 2" QVGA 320x240 resolution, it will have a 1.3MP camera, 1000 entry phonebook, Bluetooth, VCast services (music, games, and VZ Navigator), but the data is limited to 1X only. The dimensions are 4.31"H x 1.87"W x 0.38"D and will have a weight of 2.92oz (including the battery). This would make it the thinnest phone currently for Verizon.

It looks like a nice cheap option, and LG is pretty good with phones. Except the Chocolate. lol

I loved the chocolate. It was fun when I had it. But it got pretty boring 4 months after I had it.

Verizon may make, nice, cheap mid to low range phones but they severly lack good high end touch screen phones compared to other carriers. Its obvious if you look at their line up.

I'd want one IF it had EV-DO. Without it it's a cheap phone.
