Three New Semi-Smart LG Phones Coming to Verizon

The LG EnV3, EnV Touch, and Glance are all set to debut for Verizon on June 5th, for all those middle of the road customers who want some features, but not too many. They look about much as good as every other nearly-smart phone.

The LG EnV3, followup to the EnV2, packs the same QWERTY keyboard with a slightly larger internal screen and slightly better camera than its predecessor, and will retail for $129.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and with a 2-year contract.

The EnV Touch features an external, 3-inch haptic touchscreen to go along with its 3-inch internal screen. It also comes with a 3.2MP camera and, like the EnV3, a full QWERTY keyboard. It'll sell for $149.99 after a $70 rebate, which sounds kind of steep to us, unless you're one of those tweens who's into that sexting fad I keep reading about in the papers.

And the final member of the new LG team, the LG Glance, is the only non-QWERTY of the bunch, and to me, the most appealing; I don't really see the point of the expensive non-smartphones like the EnV3 and EnV Touch, but the Glance is a nice-looking, simple dumbphone. Of course, it doesn't have any remarkable features, just the standard 1.3MP camera, Bluetooth, and Verizon package (Navigator, Mobile Email, etc), but it does have a less garish design and looks slim on the pocket as well as the wallet—It'll retail for $49.99 after a $50 rebate.

DISCUSSION

I think those are usually referred to as "Messaging Phones," not "Semi Smart Phones"

Does anybody else agree that the enV2 is possibly the most hideous gadget ever created? My wife's friend has one and I just can't imagine why anybody would pay real money for such a monstrosity.
