Verizon makes the LG Revolution release date official: May 26th for $249.99
The Verizon-bound 4G-capable LG Revolution just got confirmed with an official release date of… May 26th, matching the numerous rumors. The price tag on Big Red’s third LTE-enabled smartphone stands at the hefty $249.99 with a two-year contract, but that’s not all that much of a surprise after the similarly specced HTC ThunderBolt arrived with the same price, while the Samsung DROID Charge pushed the boundaries with its $299.99 price tag.

The LG Revolution sports a single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz powering Android on a 4.3-inch WVGA screen. It houses a 5-megapixel auto-focus snapper with LED flash on the back and a 1.3MP camera up front. Interestingly, the Revolution will come with mobile hotspot functionality supporting up to 8 devices, which was launched as a trial with the ThunderBolt and is expected to turn into a paid feature come June 16th, but we have no information about whether users will have to pay to use it on the Revolution. In addition, the new 4G device will appeal to cinemaniacs with a pre-installed Netflix app. On the downside, however, it will come with Android 2.2 Froyo.
