Groovy looking handset...
I due hope that Verizon Wireless does get this phone and/or technology...it is AWESOME!!! 😎
Actually, I can't believe that it took this long for some manufacturer to think of this...I would get this phone if it was offered from Verizon Wireless.
Cool phone...cool idea! 😎
Also, I like LG, I think they are a very good brand...they always got high ratings in JD Powers studies and other electronics sites [CNET]. Plus, I like their build quality and heft that distinquishes them as a solid contender.
today when I saw this phone i was like sh** why didn't cingular release this one I have never heard of this Fas Tap technology but i like it and hope its not left to LG and that smartphone flips like the star trek can implement this technology.
How Long Before Verizon Gets It?
