If you want to take advantage of Verizon Wireless’ V CAST multimedia service, but don’t want to break the bank doing it, the cellular service provider has picked up a new option just for you. The LG VX8300 may appear like your typical clamshell, but taking a peek down its feature list will leave your friends drooling in jealousy.
With a slimmer form factor than its predecessor, the VX8300 rocks a 1.3 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom and video recording (176 x 144) capabilities, a microSD expansion slot, and dual external stereo speakers for sharing the V CAST Music tunes. Other key specs include Bluetooth v1.1 (including Object Push profile and Dial Up Networking), a beautiful OLED external display, GPS, mobile Instant Messaging, Mobile Web 2.0, and no-training-needed voice recognition.
Measuring 3.58 x 1.93 x 0.92-inches, the LG VX8300 is available now through your local Verizon kiosk or online at verizonwireless.com for a penny shy of a Benjamin, given that you’ll deal with the mail-in rebate and sign a new two-year contract.
