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.

  • These phones reproduce like damn rabbits!

    Oh look another Android phone... Throw it on the pile. Le't see how many more Android phones get released or unveiled this week.

    I'm all for options, but when it comes to Android phones, I think they are just producing them way too quickly. I mean half of these new phones are just clones of previous Android phones with minor tweaks. Enough already. We get it, people like Android. That doesn't mean that companies need to release a new device every week.

    Typical Verizon, slow, late, and behind the curve. The DInc 2 and DX2 are still 3G, and this Revolution is single-core. Ah well, my renewal doesn't come up till Obama gets re-elected (lol) anyway.
