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.

With the Pixel 5 and 4a 5G, Google finally priced its phones to succeed
google pixel 5 announced pixel5

Google's Pixels have long been a top choice for technology enthusiasts. For people who understood the importance of simple software and a phone that offered an experience greater than the sum of its parts. And for people who loved having an easy-to-use, yet exceptionally powerful, smartphone camera.

But Google ran up against a huge obstacle: Few people actually tried a Pixel phone to find out how great they were -- because they were too expensive. The first four generations of Pixels were priced comparably others in the market or coming soon, on par with where we expect the iPhone 12 to land and the cost of this summer's Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra for example. And when faced with that choice, people went with the sure thing: The big name they already knew.
