We’ve known about the existence (and impending release) of the LG Enlighten for Verizon for quite a while now. However, only today has the carrier decided to finally officially announce the midrange Android-powered smartphone.
The LG Enlighten will be available at Verizon online on September 22 and in stores on September 29. It will cost $79.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) if you agree to sign a new two-year contract and get at least a $39.99 per month voice plan and a $30 per month data plan. We’ve previously heard that the Enlighten may go for a lot less than that at Walmart, so keep that in mind if this phone interests you.
As you can see, one of the main features of the Enlighten is its side-sliding full physical QWERTY keyboard. It also has a 3.2-inch 320×480 touchscreen, an 800 MHz processor, a 3.2 MP camera, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and microSD card support (a 2 GB card being preinstalled). The LG Enlighten runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and supports Adobe Flash content.
