Verizon continues to push it’s 4G LTE offering today as it officially announces the LG Revolution 4G LTE device to it’s fold. Dubbing it an “entertainment powerhouse” the LG Revolution 4G LTE will be running Android 2.2 and show it’s media capabilities on a 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen. In all honesty, you are really paying for the 4G LTE service which Verizon thinks is worth $250 bucks on a two year contract. Other than the 5-12Mbps download and 2-5Mbps upload speeds, the LG Revolution 4G is a pretty ordinary device by todays standards with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5MP rear cam and 1.3 front facing shooter. The only other thing of note is that Verizon is going to include the Mobile Hotspot feature for a limited time at no additional charge.
