LG VS910 with Android, Bluetooth 3.0 Hits Verizon in March?
LG looks to be preparing a Bluetooth 3.0-equipped Android smartphone for Verizon called the VS910, although not much is known about this handset beyond the fact that it supports 802.11b/g/n three-flavor WiFi. All of this information was gleaned from the websites of the respective Bluetooth and WiFi governing bodies, as this model has yet to be entered into the FCC database. According to the Bluetooth special interest group, this phone would be just the company’s sixth total Bluetooth 3.0 cellphone, and seventh such device overall (including a 3.0-compliant wireless headset).
Although nowhere does it refer to this handset as an Android smartphone destined for Verizon, LG’s most recent handsets in the VS series — the VS660 Vortex, VS740 Ally, and rumored VS760 enV Pro — have all featured Google’s operating system running on Big Red. The only exception to this rule may have been the VS750 Fathom, a Snapdragon-powered Windows Mobile 6.5 handset very similar to the LG Expo; however, it seems rather unlikely that LG is reserving Bluetooth 3.0 and 802.11n for what is quickly becoming a legacy platform. According to the blurb on the Bluetooth site, the VS910 is expected to ship in early March, making it possible that we’re looking at an LTE-capable smartphone as well.
