Mobilicity has just launched a new low-end featurephone that confusingly is called the LG Wink – that’s the same name that a touchscreen featurephone got when it was announced by LG back in August. Make no mistake though, these are two different devices.
Mobilicity’s Wink can only dream of a touchscreen. In fact, it has a 2-inch screen that has a resolution of 176×220. It also comes with a 1.3-megapixel camera, a 3.5 mm headset jack, FM radio, 3G, stereo Bluetooth, 1 GB internal memory, and a microSD card slot that can take cards up to 16 GB in size. Its dimensions are 99.5x48x16.4 mm and it weighs 109.5 g.
Mobilicity will sell you the new LG Wink for $99.99 outright – no 3-year contract nonsense here. And that’s for the best, because the price is one of this phone’s main features. Still, it probably is a device that could come in handy as a second phone, replacement device or a phone for someone who isn’t into anything other than talking and texting.
