Verizon and Sprint get new affordable LG QWERTY messaging phones

LG Remarq and LG Comsos

So, you want a new phone with a full QWERTY keyboard. But you can’t be bothered with an expensive smartphone data plan – you just want the handset to be as affordable as possible. It seems that LG is catering to this need for both Sprint and Verizon customers.

These two new phones from LG both cater to the cheaper end of the wireless spectrum. So if you’re thinking along the lines of the LG Rumor and LG Lotus, then you’re bowling down the right alley.

On the Sprint side of the equation, the LG Remarq (left) is a square slider that reveals the QWERTY keyboard below. This is similar to the Palm Pre, but not really. It’s supposed to be an eco-frinedly phone, complete with an eco calculator app, along with a 1.3 megapixel camera and webmail access. Expect the LG Remarq to be $0 with contract (and rebates) starting May 9th.

For the Verizon crew, there is the LG Cosmos. It takes on a similar form factor as the Samsung Gravity, featuring a numeric keypad in a candybar configuration, but there is a slide-out QWERTY keyboard on the side too. It gets a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and GPS. The Cosmos will sell for $30 with contract (and rebates) when it ships tomorrow.
