Verizon announces LG Cosmos, BilltoMobile eCommerce service
Available starting March 25 (this Thursday), the LG Cosmos is a simple slider with a full QWERTY keyboard and a metallic finish.
The features of LG Cosmos include GPS, Bluetooth 2.1, Web-based email, instant messaging, access to social networking sites (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and others), one-touch speaker phone, and a 1.3MP camera with noise reduction.
Verizon will sell the new LG Cosmos for $29.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement (and after a $50 mail-in rebate).
Verizon has also announced it intends to launch an eCommerce service this spring, in collaboration with Danal, Inc.
The Danal BilltoMobile service will feature a $25-per-month spending limit, allowing Verizon’s users “to charge online purchases of digital goods directly to their monthly Verizon Wireless bills.”
