LG enV 3 enV Touch Glance
Verizon on Thursday picked up three long-rumored LG phones. The enV Touch is the spiritual successor to the Voyager and has a 3-inch, 800x480 touchscreen on the outside as well as a same-size, non-touch display when opened up to access the QWERTY keyboard. It represents a media upgrade with a 3.2-megapixel camera and a microSDHC slot that holds up to 16GB. Unlike other enV models, the Touch can open Office documents for reading.
The enV 3 goes without touch but is still a functional improvement over the enV 2 with a larger 1.6-inch external display, a sharper 3-megapixel camera and ergonomic improvements to its keys. MicroSDHC support also gets extended on the new phone as it is on the Touch.
Rounding out the updates is an entry candybar design, the Glance; it has a unique weave-textured metal back plate and a 1.3-megapixel camera, but only 1xRTT for cellular data.
The enV 3 appears first and ships this Friday for $130 following a rebate and a two-year plan. Both the enV Touch and Glance arrive last, shipping a week later on June 5th, and sell for $150 and $50 respectively when paired to their own rebates and two-year agreements.
