LG Enlighten For Verizon Delayed: “Coming Soon”


Whatever happened to the LG Enlighten? You might be more familiar with the phone as the LG Gelato Q QWERTY slider. As of late August, the phone looked all ready to launch, but its expected August 25 release date came and passed without the model materializing. Did Verizon pull a Bionic at the last moment and send it back to the drawing board? A newly-leaked image suggests that the Enlighten launch is still a “go”, though doesn’t help us narrow-down just when it may be.

A picture taken from an upcoming Verizon catalog shows the Enlighten as “coming soon”. At least that implies that any delay may only be temporary, and that we might hope to see the phone’s release in the next month or so.

We’re left scratching our heads as to why the launch was re-scheduled, but wouldn’t be surprised to learn it was a strategic move on Verizon’s part.

The Enlighten is powered by an 800MHz single-core processor, has a 3.2-inch HVGA screen, and a 3.2-megapixel flash-less camera. Not the most interesting hardware, sure, but we’ll let the phone’s price speak for itself once it arrives.
