Doesn't look like LG and Verizon are taking any radical steps with the next generation of the popular enV line -- these snaps of the enV3 just leaked out, and at first glance it looks basically the same as the enV2.

While we can't quite decide whether the carputer is a dying breed or simply a niche that never really took off, Dashboard Devices is hoping to revive it either way come January. The outfit will reportedly debut its ENV (Entertainment and Navigation for Vehicles) line as a two-part system. First com

Okay, our excitement about this one was just tempered a little bit. From the front, it's still a really cool (dare we say attractive) device when closed, but it seems to suggest a side profile that just isn't there. On the contrary, the enV(2) is pretty thick and ugly when glanced from its side --

Well, here are three that we didn't see coming or anything -- Verizon has officially announced the Motorola Q9c, LG enV(2), and HTC-sourced XV6900 today, all for April availability. The Moto Q9c is a more business-savvy version of the consumer-focused Q9m that was launched on Verizon late last year

Well, it's finally here: meet the LG Voyager, successor to the enV and arguably one of the best QWERTY handsets on Verizon to date. Pretty much everyone walks away with a feature or two here that they're gonna love: EV-DO, VCAST TV, a 2 megapixel camera, two amazingly large displays, expandable mem

Yep, it's real! In case orange or the original gray scheme weren't to your liking, the LG enV on Verizon can now be had in a \"hot new green color\" (their words, not ours) -- but only at your friendly local Circuit City location. It seems this particular version has been designated as a Circuit City

So much for any color approaching normalcy, apparently! Following the original pedestrian scheme of silver and black and its wacky, wild bright orange cousin, Verizon and LG are apparently prepping a dark green VX9900 enV that looks fit to take on a textual sortie or two. No word on a release date

If you've been patiently awaiting details about, well, a whole slew of handsets, chances are that a recent Sprint event held the answers to a-many of those very questions. First up was the Palm Centro (also coined Gandolf and Treo 800), which you've already seen plenty of earlier today. Moving on, t

As expected, LG's hip lil' QWERTY number, the VX9900 enV, has re-dropped in orange. The feature list is pretty much the same as the original, they've just gone ahead and gutted the phone's stiff, businesslike black and replaced it with a decidedly brighter hue. Get it online -- it's an online exclu

We've known these two were in the pipe, but there's something about big, pretty pictures that really drives the point home. First up is the Motorola W385, an entry-level flip that borrows some design cues from its KRZR stablemate while deleting the external music controls and \"ooh, shiny\" finish. T

Leave it to LG to come up with an idea to reinvent the same hot, trendy QWERTY phone for The Network and release it in a different color. Enter Verizon's enV (aka VX9900) in a new color scheme that closely resembles a color normally reserved for Crayola's Crayons (think burnt sienna). With no \"offi

Last time we checked, the true challenge in speedy texting was overcoming the numeric keypad. Just ask Ben Cook or Ang Chuang Yang -- two of the world's quickest -- about what it's like to belt out a meaningless sequence of 160 characters without even the benefit of predictive text entry to ease the

Where we come from, trying to participate in a texting context with a QWERTY device is called \"cheating,\" but we guess LG has some obligation to push the text-tastic capabilities of its V and enV handsets, so we'll cut 'em some slack here. In fact, the V and enV are the only devices LG's allowing i

With the sheer volume of pre-launch press swirling around it, expectations were naturally running high for the VX9900 \"enV,\" Verizon and LG's update to the deeply-adored VX9800. Does it live up to the hype? MobileBurn put the enV through a gauntlet of tests, and yeah -- it looks like the split-pers
