Verizon Unveiling the $120 LG Lancet Windows Smartphone
The new smartphone is Verizon's first offering that includes Advanced Calling 1.0 features for HD-quality sound when communicating with other enabled devices.LG's new Lancet smartphone is now available through Verizon Wireless, featuring high-end features and a low $120 price tag. The LG Lancet runs on Windows 8.1 and includes a 4.5-inch LCD display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8GB of internal storage and a 2,100mAh lithium ion battery, as well as an 8MP multimode rear camera and a VGA front camera. The internal storage can be expanded to 128GB through the addition of a microSD card. But what perhaps sets the Lancet apart is that it is the first phone available through Verizon to include Advanced Calling 1.0 capabilities, which means that users get HD-quality sound when using it to call other users who have Advanced Calling-compatible devices. The XLTE network-ready LG Lancet is now available online immediately and will be available in Verizon stores starting on May 21. The smartphone can be purchased over 24 months on a no-interest Verizon Edge payment plan for $5 a month for 24 months. New customers who bring their existing mobile number to Verizon can get a $100 bill credit within two to three bill cycles for each new smartphone activated on Verizon Edge, for a limited time.
The phone can also be purchased for $19.99 with a two-year contract from Verizon, which is $50 off its regular contract price. Verizon More Everything contract customers also receive 25GB of cloud storage on the Verizon Cloud at no additional charge with the purchase of an LG Lancet handset.
