LG Cosmos gives Verizon low price messaging

Verizon adds LG Cosmos to line

Verizon started off CTIA by adding an LG messaging phone. The Cosmos brings a slide-out QWERTY messaging phone to the carrier and promises a handful of social networking features that tap directly into Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, including GPS for geolocation features. Calling is also a strong point as it auto-adjusts sound to compensate for ambient noise.

Costs are kept low through the use of a 1.3-megapixel camera and the absence of significant internal storage, though LG does add Bluetooth 2.1 and promises a web browser complex enough for e-mail. The Cosmos ships this Thursday and will cost just $30 on a contract, albeit only after a $50 rebate.
