LG 800g Review Index
If you are looking for an LG 800g review, this is the place to start. Here, I’ve compiled all the information I’ve been able to find so far. Please see the links above for more information. What follows below is thr original post I put up for the LG 800g review index page.
As with all TracFone / Net10 / Straight Talk phone releases, very little information has been available pre-release with this model. However, the big news is that it is going to be a touch-screen device, and there are also some signs that it will be available on TracFone as well.
It looks like this will be a “feature” phone rather than a “smart” phone, and it will be able to use only Java apps. I think it’s safe to say at this point that we can expect a price tag somewhere in the $75-$150 range, and most likely at the lower end of that spectrum.
Beyond that, it is a GSM device with a host of features you’d expect:
- 2.0 Mega-pixel Camera
- Mobile Web
- Mp3 player
- Voice recorder
- MicroSD card slot
Further, it looks like the Bluetooth on this device will allow a lot more functionality than in many America Movil handsets, with the ability to transfer files, connect to auto navigation systems, and provide stereo audio output.
Also, with this phone America Movil is giving a better idea than usual about when we can expect to see it for sale. On Net10’s Facebook page, there was reference to it coming out at the end of this week, around April 21st, 2011. Obviously this comment would apply to the Net10 version. It remains to be seen whether it will be available on the other two carriers. TracFone may be more doubtful, but I think it’s a safe bet that a Straight Talk version will definitely be forthcoming, and most likely at or near the same time as the Net10 release.
When it is released, I’ll do my best to get my hands on it quickly and write up a full LG 800g review as thoroughly as I do all America Movil phones.
