Bell launches LG Vantage slider touch phone

updated 09:25 pm EDT, Thu May 22, 2008

Bell LG Vantage slider

Bell Canada is now shipping the LG Vantage - also known as LG Glimmer on the US carrier Alltel - offering Canadians their first glimpse of the touchscreen slider phone. The phone will feature EVDO connectivity and dual-band GSM, and sports a 2MP camera, Bluetooth, and a microSD card slot. The Vantage joins Bell's list of devices as competition to the LG Shine, which is currently in service with both Telus and Rogers Wireless.

Bell will offer the device at $425 without contract, with one, two, and three year contracts reducing the price to $375, $275, and $225, respectively.

    Lacks current technology.

    I don't see how this phone can compete with Rogers HSPA devices such as the LG TU720 Shine or even when Rogers gets the next version of the iPhone later this year. Bell's network still doesn't offer HSPA (support for both voice and data streaming at the same time). Bell already sells a LG Shine though it lacks HSPA, does not have video calling and is not quad band for world coverage.
