Verizon's version of the LG Optimus Vu to be named "Intuition"26
We also get pricing news, as the Intuition will sell for $199.99 on contract, or $549.99 at full retail. It’s somewhat of a relief to see Verizon start to introduce more LTE handsets at the $199 price point, especially an oversized device like this that could have felt like it costs more because there’s just more stuff to hold.
This will be Verizon’s first phablet, as they decided to pass on the Samsung Galaxy Note last year. We can imagine they thought it would be a niche product, a suspicion many of us shared until it turned into the surprise blockbuster of the year. Now that the phablet market has been demonstrated to be a winner, we suspect it won’t be long before the Intuition is joined by similarly oversized devices by HTC and Samsung.
So if you are on Verizon and want to get in on the phablet action, hang tight as the cavalry appears to be on the way!
