Yes it seems Verizon and LG want to Enlighten us with their new Android phones aptly names the Enlighten! I’m a bit surprised by the specs on this phone though, it’s only running an 800Mhz CPU?! Most phones out there today run at least a 1GHZ, but I guess for under $100 you can’t complain too much right?! The Enlighten is running Android Gingerbread and has 3.2” 320×480 display along with a 3.2Mp camera and it even comes with a 2gb microSD card installed for all your stuff. Oh and it’s a slider phone, so you’ll get a nice full qwerty keyboard. Pricing will be $79.99 after $50 mail in rebate and of course the standard new 2yr contract. It will be available online September 22nd and in store the 29th.
