LG is not pulling any punches with the smartphones they are delivering and their latest creation just might pull you in its direction. Today Verizon and LG announced that the LG Spectrum is available at the nearest VerizonWireless store for all consumers. Those that have been looking for a phone with some backbone but won’t break the bank might want to take a look at this little baby. The LG Spectrum comes with some exclusive content from its release. ESPN Scorecenter HD is available for all those sports nuts out there that love to get updated on the latest scores of the their favorites games (Go Miami Heat!). The LG Spectrum will also be graced with Verizon’s 4GLTE network and with the combination of the LTE network and the 1.5GHZ dual core processor on board, this should make for a pretty fast device.
Android 2.3.5 will be on hand for the Spectrum but don’t fret as Verizon has already assured everyone in today’s press release that the Spectrum will be updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Mobile Hotspot is also featured on the Spectrum as well. An 8mp camera with 1080p video capture with a 1.3 front facing camera for video chat is also installed on the Spectrum. And to add a bonus to the camera features, LG has installed a new app called Smartmovie HD. With this app you can create and edit video’s straight from your phone. The LG Spectrum is being sold at local Verizon retailers for $199.99 with a new two-year contract so if you’ve been looking for a spec heavy phone but not willing to put out some major coin for one then look no further. Hey, the economy is hard on everyone. That doesn’t mean your smartphone has to be a windup toy.
