Red VX8350 from Verizon
Verizon Wireless has begun selling a new version of LG's VX8350, the VX8350R. The R is simply a cosmetic enhancement, sporting a glossy red coat instead of the basic black of the original. It is otherwise unchanged; the device sits in the middle range of Verizon's lineup, with features such as Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera and a microSD slot that supports sizes up to 4GB.
External controls ease music playback, and the phone is also enabled for V CAST Video and Music downloads, as well as VZ navigation. A VX8350 (black or red) is normally $100 with a two-year contract, but can be had for $50 online.
