LG Octane texts its way onto Verizon for $100

Chris Ziegler

You might think $99.99 on contract after rebate is a little pricey for a phone with such a tiny display, but the new LG Octane's got a secret: it's a bit like the enV series with a secondary display inside the landscape clamshell accompanied by a full QWERTY keyboard. Other features include a 3.2 megapixel autofocus cam with flash (yes, autofocus, not fixed), a new email client, microSD expansion up to 16GB, and Bluetooth 2.1. Look for it online and in stores starting tomorrow.
