I have often wondered if one can call Android operated phones entry-level, but my source calls Verizon’s Enlighten from LG this. I think it is odd that the LG Enlighten is not a full on touchscreen that I have seen other phones. Yes, it is a full-slide out QWERTY keyboard, which I honestly prefer to a touchscreen. I guess I still need to adapt to touchscreen keyboards. However, unless this thing slides out to reveal a keyboard that is just like the one I am typing on my laptop, I am not completely adapted. This does slide-out to reveal some bigger keys than most mobile phone keyboards.

As for what is inside, it has Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with a 3.2 inch 320 x 480 touchscreen display. It also has a 800 MHz processor, which is good for multi-tasking. Then it has the whole Adobe Flash 10, with a customizable apps menu. In fact, it has seven customizable home screens with shortcuts to apps, favorites, and widgets.

It also has a 3G Mobile hotspot that allows users to share a data connection with up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices.

As for the camera, it has a 3.2 Megapixel with an autofocus camera and camcorder.

I suppose that Verizon is planning on doing more entry-level phones, and I am thinking that we will see this strategy being used by many other carriers as well.

The Enlighten is available now online, and it will be showing up at Verizon stores starting on September 29th. The price will be $79.99 with a two-year contract. Customers will need to subscribe to a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan that begins at $39.99 for 450 minutes per month as well as a smartphone data package starting at $30 monthly to access 2GB worth of data.
