Nokia and Apple aren't the only ones making brightly colored phones, you know. Upstart Android manufacturer BLU has just released a new midrange handset, called the Vivo 4.8 HD, that's sure to appeal to those with a taste for neon and Android 4.2. It comes in neon pink or greenish yellow, along with matte black or white variants, and has a 4.8-inch, 720 x 1280 Super AMOLED display. On the inside, the Vivo 4.8 HD packs far from cutting edge tech: a 1.5Ghz quad-core chip from Mediatek, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Yet, it crams that gear -- along with an 8 megapixel rear shooter and a 5-megapixel front-facing unit -- into a svelte, pocketable 6.9mm thick chassis. Unfortunately there's no LTE inside, but you can pull HSPA+ 42 speeds from AT&T or T-Mobile. The best part, as is the case with other BLU phones, is the price: just $249 unlocked.
