Documents on the Federal Communication Commission's web site reveal that the LG Connect, announced for MetroPCS during the CES trade show earlier this month, is also headed to Verizon Wireless's network. The LG VS-840, which was recently approved by the FCC, supports CDMA 850/1900MHz and LTE 750MHz, which is unique to Verizon. The FCC also confirms that the VS-840 supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The FCC earlier approved the LG MS-840 with CDMA 850/1700/1900MHz and LTE 1700/1900MHz, which is unique to MetroPCS. The MS-840 is being called the Connect 4G by MetroPCS. Verizon Wireless hasn't announced any details about the VS-840 version, including the name.
The LG Lucid offers a 4-inch screen and 4G in a compact body. This little phone may be small in stature and a bit short on looks, but it's big on features and even bigger on functionality.
MetroPCS's latest LTE 4G smartphone comes from LG. The Connect 4G offers a decent spec list, but stumbles a a few times on the road to smartphone nirvana.
The LG Connect 4G is designed to be a relatively affordable LTE phone for carriers like MetroPCS. While it's small in size and price, it's no slouch in features.
