Despite the deluge of smartphones that have hit the market in recent years, there's still a demand for basic phones. Verizon has quite the history with LG when it comes to clamshell devices, and if rumors are correct, the LG Accolade and Clout will fit right into the lineup. Branded as the LG VX5600, the Accolade will be the latest addition to the LG VX5XXX line and will offer a 1.3-megapixel camera and Bluetooth. The LG Clout, on the other hand, is slated to replace the LG VX8360. No word on pricing, features, or even a picture to go with it, but I'm sure it will offer 3G connectivity, a decent camera, Bluetooth, and an external display.
With Verizon's new data requirement for feature phones, the LG VX5600 is another alternative for those looking to avoid the charges. Sure, they're relatively bland, but not everyone needs a Motorola DROID. Backup phone, anyone?
