lg env orangeHow do you drive new sales of a phone? Introduce another color, or so LG and Verizon might have us think. This move follows the trend of Orange devices subscribed to by Palm, Apple (Gen 2 shuffle), Sony Ericsson and others. If you missed our review of the plain-colored EnV, you can find it here.

The Orange EnV is $149 with a two year contract and is only available online.

Our review found:

Product: LG enV for Verizon
Price: $149.99 (with a 2 year contract and $50 mail in rebate)
Rating: 7.0/10
Pros: QWERTY keyboard, speakerphone quality, 2.0 megapixel camera, wireless email, EVDO, flip-up design, price, battery life, instant messenger and Bluetooth 2.0.
Cons: Thick body, lack of mobile web browser, very small exterior screen and smaller than preferred interior screen.
Overall: The enV is a great option for teens and young professionals who are looking to stay in touch via email and instant messenger and are ready to move beyond a standard handset but don’t have the corporate account to pay for a Palm/Blackberrry/Windows Mobile Smartphone (and just aren’t feeling the Sidekick).

The new color doesn’t seem to add any features or anything to the price, which is nice. A decent phone now in a color your are gaurenteed to love or hate depending on just how much you like burnt orange. Reminds me of some shag carpet we had back in the 70s, though that image, like most things in the 70s, is blurry.

    Actually, the orange version has the old enV's dedicated "e-mail" key removed and turned it into a shortcut button which this user can set "alarm, IM, etc."

    Do some reporting guys, its not hard.
