Verizon Wireless and LG Mobile Phones announce the availability of the VX10 wireless handset that can access the Express Network(sm) -- Verizon Wireless' national high-speed wireless data network. The VX10 features LG's signature external LCD for quick access to Caller ID, a handy 4-way navigation key, 2-way short messaging capability and boasts a large, easy-to-read internal LCD that works great for both text messages and graphics.
"The VX10 offers the latest handset technologies and innovations. When combined with the Verizon Wireless nationwide network -- both data and voice -- the handset gives consumers an unrivaled mobile communication experience," said Dan Gralak, vice president of sales for LG Mobile Phones. "The extremely lightweight VX10 is focused on complementing and enhancing consumers' lives through functionality, design and style."
The VX10, which retails for $199.99 with a two-year customer agreement, is available online at www.verizonwireless.com and at Verizon Wireless' 1,300 Communications Stores nationwide.
