LG Lotus Elite hops from a Las Vegas billboard right to Sprint retail


Egads! The LG Lotus Elite is here, and while it's gained a few features, it still shares it's predecessor's awful interesting design aesthetic. The Lotus Elite distinguishes itself from the Lotus with the addition of a larger 2.4-inch external 262k display, a bold new tattoo pattern, support for up to 32GB of memory -- with 2GB included -- and access to Sprint TV, messaging, pictures, and even TeleNav. The LG Lotus Elite wanders into stores on the 12th in red for $99 on a new contract and a black version should follow four days after. More pics in the gallery below.
