Verizon Wireless -- Verizon Wireless and LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc. (LG Mobile Phones) announced today the exclusive availability of the LG enV. A successor to The V by LG, the enV is the ultimate wireless phone offering an abundance of fun and functional multimedia features: including V CAST and V CAST Music, VZ Navigator(SM), an integrated QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth capabilities, dual speakers and a 2.0 megapixel camera that provides crisp, clear photos and videos.

The enV is the perfect device for V CAST and V CAST Music customers. With over 1.4 million songs to choose from in the Verizon Wireless V CAST Music store, customers can download the latest hits and play the songs they love whenever they like. A separately purchased external memory microSD(TM) card allows customers to move their own music or video clips from their computer to the phone. Plus, customers can take their music experience to the next level by pairing the device with a Bluetooth stereo headset, to enjoy the rich, full sound of their favorite songs wirelessly.

Complementing its robust mobile entertainment features, the enV comes equipped with a slide-out QWERTY keypad for easy access to messaging applications including Wireless Sync, the proprietary e-mail solution from Verizon Wireless. With Wireless Sync, customers can synchronize their enV with a home or office PC for easy access to new e-mail, calendar, contact, and task information.

Already equipped with VZ Navigator capabilities, the enV is ready for the road. VZ Navigator uses Location Based Services (LBS), including mapping, audible turn-by-turn navigation and the ability to find over 14 million points of interest (like ATMs, restaurants and gas stations) for $2.99 a day or $9.99 monthly.
