LG hasn't really done much to support Windows Phone as of late (despite promises to the contrary), but it's making amends for that today. Verizon has announced the previously leaked LG Lancet, a Windows Phone 8.1 device (LG's first, in fact) for the budget crowd. The hardware won't blow you away between the 4.5-inch display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, 0.3-megapixel front camera and 8GB of expandable storage. However, it does have a few aces up its sleeve.

For a start, the Lancet is Verizon's first Windows device to support higher-quality LTE voice calling -- you won't be left behind when it comes to network upgrades. You'll also get modern LG software tricks like double-tapping to wake the screen. The price is really why you'll want to take notice, though. Verizon will sell the Lancet for a mere $120 off-contract when it hits shops on May 21st, so you won't have to buy a costly One M8 or ATIV SE just to use Microsoft's current mobile OS on Big Red.
