Verizon Wireless and LG Electronics have just announced the July 15 availability of the VX8100, the latest mobile phone to be included in Verizon’s high-speed EV-DO network.
The VX8100 is optimized for the Verizon service V CAST, which is the first (and so far only) wireless broadband multimedia service that enables subscribers to view high-quality video clips from leading sports, entertainment, and news sources. A V-CAST-enabled mobile phone also allows users to play 3D games and download rich multimedia content.
Apart from being V-CAST-enabled, the VX8100 features advanced Bluetooth wireless technology for certain specified profiles, this allows users to wirelessly connect to various Bluetooth-enabled devices such as headsets and certain automobile systems. Further, the VX8100 is one of the first mobile phones in the US market that has removable MiniSD memory, allowing users to view their self-made digital pictures and video clips off their wireless handset. It also has dual external speakers for great audio and a megapixel digital camera. All this in a chic and stylish clamshell case design that is so LG.
The VX8100 will retail for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a 2-yr subscription plan from Verizon.
