Sure, there are scattered reports of Verizon already offering the update to LG’s popular LG VX9900 enV, but the handset hasn’t yet gone officially official. For those of you eagerly awaiting Verizon’s launch of the updated enV handset – the LG VX9100 enV2 – you’re wait is almost over. The sleek and diminutive text-messaging powerhouse is slated to hit the No. 2 US carrier’s CDMA airwaves tomorrow.
The new LG enV2 will come to market with a 2 megapixel camera, stereo speakers, and of course a QWERTY keyboard in tow. And, with Bluetooth 2.0 and a microSD card slot, the LG enV2 should prove to be a competent successor to the original LG enV.
For those too lazy to actually read their own text messages, the LG enV2 features a text-to-speech capability that will read your SMS text messages to you. As expected, the LG VX9100 enV2 will be offered in your choice of Maroon or Black. You’ll have to pony up $129.99 and sign a 2-year contract, but if you’ve been waiting for this handset to finally drop, you probably already have the cash in hand.
The LG VX9100 enV2’s smaller size and redesigned external keypad and internal QWERTY keyboard owe to the device’s incredible in-hand feel. Check out our in-hand pictures from CTIA Las Vegas 2008 while you wait for Verizon to launch the LG enV2.
