8100 Not on Verizon Site
Usually when on of their phones is out of stock it says so (but they keep the phone on the site).
Anyone have a clue??
Mobile Phone Screen Capture
BTW, How did you do the screen captures? Digital Camera? I know there's a few apps for Nokia devices, but haven't found one for non-Nokia.
Here's my take:
Reasonably nice to hold and handle, although the flip open angle is a little too snug for my liking. I like my phones to open flatter.
The speakers look like a big womans hips.
I was seriously tripped up bu the video recorder. I've been using a Sharp 903SH to video blog my travels around the world and half way through the intro to my spiel the LG stopped recording! I thought it was broken. It sure was a shock ...
Are you positive there are 6 tabs? I count five, but hey, math was never my strong subject.
Anyway, nice review. Thanks for taking the time to get all of the information right... 😳
Six tabs, five tabs, not much difference. They have the more important parts right.
On site observations!
