Bell LG Vantage slider
Bell Canada is now shipping the LG Vantage - also known as LG Glimmer on the US carrier Alltel - offering Canadians their first glimpse of the touchscreen slider phone. The phone will feature EVDO connectivity and dual-band GSM, and sports a 2MP camera, Bluetooth, and a microSD card slot. The Vantage joins Bell's list of devices as competition to the LG Shine, which is currently in service with both Telus and Rogers Wireless.
Bell will offer the device at $425 without contract, with one, two, and three year contracts reducing the price to $375, $275, and $225, respectively.
