Verizon Wireless will be welcoming the LG Revolution into its smartphone fold on Thursday. The Android 2.2-based handheld will also likely be very appealing to Netflix subscribers.

Yes, the LG Revolution has many impressive specs, including LTE connectivity, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and the capability to double as a mobile hotspot that provides 4G access with up to 8 Wi-Fi-enabled devices.

But the Revolution is also being boasted as the first Android smartphone to launch with the Netflix app pre-loaded, which was already showcased at Mobile World Congress in February. It would have been additionally nice to see the LG Revolution roll out with Gingerbread rather than Froyo, but I guess we can't be too picky.

Additional specs include:

  • 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 5.0-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash, 720p HD video recording/playback and image editor
  • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Adobe Flash Player support
  • Dolby Mobile audio
  • Built-in HDMI output
  • SmartShare (Supports sharing multimedia content with HDMI-capable displays)
  • 16GB microSD card

When available in stores and online tomorrow, the LG Revolution will retail for $249.99 with the signing of a new two-year service agreement as well as voice and data plans.
