The Mobile Leaps

Verizon LG VX9800 EVDO/V CAST Phone

The new Verizon mobile phone is one of the hottest products available right now. Its price is $349.99 but with all features it includes it is well worth the investment. The following information is courtesy of Personal Tech Pipeline.
“The big selling point of the VX9800 is that it has two orientations: in the first, it looks like a traditional cell phone with a keypad and small but bright color 160-by-128–pixel LCD on the front. With a 1.2-megapixel camera on the back that takes 1280-by-960–pixel images at its highest resolution, you might mistake it for a bulky version of a common phone.Its second identity splits it down the middle to reveal a 320-by-256–pixel screen, which automatically takes over from the front screen. This interior cinema-oriented LCD displays a range of 262,000 colors; the front screen just 64,000.This format is designed to work best with Verizon's video-on-demand V CAST service that provides short, small, streaming excerpts of news, weather, sports, and TV shows, among other programming for $15 per month on top of a voice plan. Verizon has three other phones that handle V CAST for $100 to $150 with a two-year contract or $200 to $250 for a single year. All have smaller, traditionally oriented phone screens.
The phone and Verizon's network are equipped to send images and videos as e-mail attachments or multimedia messages (MMS) for rates that vary from per message fees to $5 to $15 per month for unlimited in-network messaging and metered messaging to non-Verizon phones”

Verizon Cuts Phone Rates

Verizon informed its costumers of another great change this past Wednesday, November the 9th. Verizon Communications Inc. sharply cut its prices for unlimited phone service across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
The new Verizon plans, which will be offered in Virginia, range from $35 to $40 for unlimited local and domestic long-distance plus call waiting, caller ID and voice mail, or from $30 to $35 for unlimited calling with no extra features. Taxes and surcharges typically add $10 to $20 to the monthly bill.
Those rates are at least $15 cheaper than any of Verizon's existing packages with unlimited calling, although many of those plans include a larger selection of features and calls to Canada.
This is part of other changes done in middle of an all out war between mobile companies.
