LG Glance (Verizon Wireless) Video Transcript
[ Music ] ^m00:00:03 I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the LG Glance for Verizon Wireless. As you can see here, it's one of the skinniest phones around, measuring less than 0.4 inch thick. It has a simple candy bar design here, plus a really beautiful 2 inch display that's very colorful. And the neat thing, you do get a very compact navigation array. It consists of 2 soft keys, this joystick toggle in the middle here, the Send key, the Clear key as well as the End Power key. Underneath you do get a pretty spacious number keypad, they're raised above the surface so it's easier to dial by feel. On the back here there's a 1.3 megapixel camera lens. There's also this very unusual woven metal back plate. It's a little cheesy looking though. The Glance is a entry level phone, so you won't find a lot of features here. You do get a very descent 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, GPS in the form of VZ Navigator, mobile email, text messaging that comes with threaded conversations, and more. The LG Glance is 49.99 after rebate and a 2 year service agreement with Verizon Wireless. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been a first look at the LG Glance. ^m00:01:16 [ Music ]
