LG Vortex coming soon (and free) to Verizon

There’s something wonderful about cheap Android phones, and there ain’t nothing cheaper than free. Using that logic, the LG Vortex that is soon making its way to Verizon is about as wonderful as phones get.

OK, so my logic is flawed, but you can’t be upset at getting a smartphone that would have cost about $200 only 2 years ago for nuttin’ (after $100 mail-in rebate, that is). Cheap smartphones FTW!

The LG Vortex is basically the sweet-smelling Optimus S by another name.

You’re getting Froyo, a 600MHz processor (that’s faster than my phone, people!), 3.2″ screen, and Bing search instead of Google.

You could definitely do worse.

No firm date of release just yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
