LG's Lotus Gets Elite
LG and Sprint are continuing their partnership with the release of the successor to the stylish Lotus phone. The LG Lotus Elite has all the looks of the original Lotus, but has stepped it up a notch with a few exclusive features.
One of the new features on the Elite is the 2.4-inch external touchscreen that allows users to easily navigate all their pertinent information without having to open the phone. The screen has a 320x240 resolution which makes for a vibrant phone experience. Other features include the new three dedicated shortcut keys for social networking, email, and text. The social networking button, dubbed Social can be mapped to a person's favorite social network.
In addition, the fashion phone comes equipped with a 2.0 megapixel camera with autofocus that is located in the hinge of the phone. There's also a full QWERTY keyboard and microSD slot that expands the memory up to 32.GB.
The phone is currently available at Sprint for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two year agreement.
