In the wireless world, there's nothing more exciting than new phone releases. The Samsung Intensity is getting up there in age, so it makes sense that Verizon would be looking at replacement options. The LG Cosmos VN250, which launches March 25th, offers a full QWERTY keyboard, 2.0-inch QVGA display, 1.3-megapixel camera, 2.5mm headphone jack, 1X connectivity, and a microSD card slot (with support for up to a 16 GB card). No word on pricing just yet, but my guess would be the $30-$60 range with a new two-year agreement.
I'll give Verizon credit - despite the featurephone data plan requirement, it's nice to know that they're offering a few QWERTY-enabled options. For those that need a QWERTY option but don't want to pay for an expensive data plan, the LG Cosmos is right up your alley. Anyone considering it when it launches next week?
