Remember that quirky little square LG phone from last year, the Lotus? Well, they’ve gone and made another one: the Lotus Elite. This ought to sound pretty familiar for anyone who’s been reading MobileCrunch for a while, as we scooped all the details on this handset (sans the name) way back in October.

All of the details coming out today, from the January launch date to the touchscreen face and 32GB microSD card support, are spot-on for what we wrote at the time. The rest of the specs stayed more-or-less the same; there’s a QWERTY keyboard hidden inside the clamshell, and they’ve kept the same 2.0 megapixel camera on the back. Available in red beginning January 10th, and black as of February 14th. Expect it to set you back $99 bucks after a 2-year contract and a $50 rebate.
