LG enV2 and Samsung Alias

Continuing its news ahead of the CTIA phone show, Verizon this morning unwrapped sequels to two of its more recognizable cellphones. The enV2 (shown) is considerably slimmer and sleeker than the original and supplies much larger, more professional-looking controls on the outside while also improving the enV's signature inside features with a larger screen and a more comfortable QWERTY keyboard. LG has also upgraded the phone's media features with a 2-megapixel camera and a microSDHC slot that supports up to 8GB.

The enV2 also supports assisted GPS through VZ Navigator as well as streaming music and video over a 3G link. Verizon plans to ship the flip phone in April for $130 on a two-year plan.

Separately, the company is also issuing a quiet update to the Samsung u740. Now called the Alias, the phone has a subtler dark silver-on-black color scheme than the original and an improved keyboard layout that makes it easier to identify letters and numbers. The phone's 1.3-megapixel camera, touch music controls, and overall feature set are largely the same. It also sells for the same $130 as the enV2.
