LG enV2 Cell Phone Announced at Verizon Wireless

Successor to the Popular enV by LG, the Slim, Stylish enV(2) Comes in Two Hot New Colors Along with Larger External Keys and Internal Display

Ahead of CTIA WIRELESS 2008, Verizon Wireless, owner and operator of the nation’s most reliable wireless voice and data network, and LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc. (LG Mobile Phones) today announced the enV(2)™ by LG will be available in April, online at and at more than 2,400 Verizon Wireless Communications Stores across the nation, including those at Circuit City. The successor to the popular enV by LG, the new enV(2) gets a makeover with a new slim redesign and sophisticated black or maroon finish.

The enV(2) supports a number of features and services that customers have come to expect in wireless phones from LG and Verizon Wireless, including V CAST Music and Video, VZ Navigator(SM), Bluetooth capabilities, dual speakers and a 2.0 megapixel camera. The phone’s spacious QWERTY keypad with large sized external keys makes messaging easy, while its 2.4-inch internal screen offers crisp, crystal-clear videos and images.


The enV(2) is the ideal multimedia device for music and video lovers. Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Music store gives customers access to more than 2.8 million songs from both well-known and independent artists to download and blast on the phone’s dual speakers. Music aficionados can enjoy the rich, full sound of their favorite tunes anywhere, anytime by simply pairing the enV(2) with a Bluetooth Stereo headset or accessory. Customers can also record and save a variety of video clips that can easily be shared with family and friends by using the video recording capabilities on the enV(2). A separately purchased external memory microSD™ card allows customers to store their own music or video clips on their phones and move them from their PCs to their phones.

“We are addressing the burgeoning texting trend by spending time asking what consumers want and expect from their mobile devices,” said Mr. Ehtisham Rabbani, vice president of product strategy and marketing for LG Mobile Phones. “We know the texting audience wants a mobile device that is compact enough to slide easily into pant pockets and handbags without compromising the integrity of the phone’s features. The slimmed-down enV(2) offers everything consumers loved about the enV with the added benefit of a larger, more spacious internal screen with large easy-to-text keys.”

Equipped with access to VZ Navigator(SM), enV(2) is also a great companion when on-the-road. VZ Navigator uses location-based services (LBS) to provide audible turn-by-turn navigation and the ability to find more than 14 million points of interest, from ATMs and gas stations to restaurants and tourist destinations. The enV(2) by LG also offers the following features and capabilities:
