It looks like the summer’s really heating things up for Verizon. With the iPhone 3G launch hanging imminently over their corporate heads, the No. 2 US wireless carrier has announced the LG Dare alongside the LG Decoy and LG Chocolate 3 to help attract some newcomers to the CDMA network.
So, with a 3G radio, VCAST, VZ Navigator, and 3.2 megapixel camera in tow, the LG Dare is expected to bring its clean lines, sharp demeanor, and touchscreen goodies later this month. But, it doesn’t end there.
In hopes that their little darling can put up a fight against the iPhone 3G, LG and Verizon have included VGA video recording, HTML Browser, 3.5mm headset jack, handwriting recognition, Bluetooth 2.0, EVDO Rev A, microUSB, and microSDHC (8GB), as well as a light sensor and proximity sensor to adjust screen brightness and turn off the LCD accordingly – all in the name of convenience and battery life. And, for those of you that just can’t deal with launch date vagueries, here’s a little morsel of info for you.
We’re hearing that Verizon is prepping the LG Dare for a June 26 launch date. The LG Dare will go live through online sales initially, with in-store and telephone sales expected to kick off on July 3.
Anyone planning to grab an LG Dare when it hits later this month?
