LG Revolution 4G LTE phone hitting Verizon May 26 for $249.99 (with Netflix)

lg-revolution-android-4g-phoneJoining the Samsung Droid Charge and HTC ThunderBolt, LG’s Revolution will be the third Verizon 4G LTE handset to hit the market. Launching tomorrow, May 26, the Android smartphone will come preloaded with Netflix and cost a cool $249.99 with a two-year contract – the same price as the ThunderBolt.

We haven’t yet taken the Revolution for a full spin, but we did get some hands-on impressions at CES and CTIA earlier this year. Overall, the Revolution appears to be a fine Android device, but like all first generation LTE phones, it runs a single core processor and may have some issues with short battery life. It is also launching with Android 2.2. Hopefully LG will provide an update to 2.3 in the near future.
