LG Lucid may have come available more than a year ago. Not to mention the bit out the follow-up LG Lucid 2 having been released just a few short weeks ago, however this Monday morning brings talk of the original Lucid making a comeback. Well, a comeback of sorts. While this has yet to be confirmed by Verizon Wireless, it is looking like the original LG Lucid may soon be joining the pre-paid device lineup.

Verizon Wireless has had the LG Lucid available for some time now. Coming as a follow-up, the carrier has recently released the Lucid 2, which has landed in the mid-range lineup as a budget friendly device. The LG Lucid 2 brings 4G LTE connectivity along with a 4.3-inch display and relatively slim design. Perhaps nicer for some, the handset is available for free on a two-year agreement and has a wide variety of additional accessories. With that being said, we have recently spent some time with the handset and have a bit to say about the device -- so, read on to see if this is one you should consider or simply ignore.
Verizon Wireless and LG have announced the upcoming availability of the Lucid 2 smartphone. As the rumor was calling for, the LG Lucid 2 will be available beginning on April 4. The one catch with that, the April 4 availability is by way of the Verizon Wireless website. The handset will not be available in the retail stores for a few weeks.
LG Lucid 2 have begun to surface. Looking back to last week and we were hearing details about how the LG Optimus F5 was going to arrive with Verizon Wireless as the Lucid 2. As of today though, it looks like some additional details have surfaced. In fact, assuming these rumors prove accurate, the one bit we are left wondering about will be the price.
LG were presented with iF product design awards for 2013. In all, this list includes the Optimus Life, Lucid 4G, Optimus G, Optimus L7, Optimus L9 and Optimus LTE2. With the exception of the Optimus Life and the Optimus LTE2, these were all design awards in the smartphone category.
LG announced the Optimus F5 smartphone earlier in the month during Mobile World Congress and as of today it looks like we have some details in terms of an upcoming release. That release is with Verizon Wireless and it is expected that the Optimus F5 will arrive as the LG Lucid 2. The original Lucid (seen below) was sporting the model number of VS840 and this follow-up looks to be the VS870.
Verizon's plans to stop offering the original Galaxy Nexus, but things are far worse than we feared. It turns out Verizon is discontinuing a number of handsets, with the apparent goal of letting stock dry up over the next few months. Some of the handsets Verizon is discontinuing are a little on the old side these days, while others might be getting phased out in anticipation of a successor.
Ice Cream Sandwich updates for both the Motorola DROID Bionic and the LG Lucid. Of course, we heard earlier in the month that the ICS update for the Bionic was in testing, but today we know we're getting close to release. Verizon hasn't announced an actual release date for this Ice Cream Sandwich update yet, but with the support documents now up on the carrier's website, it can't be too much longer before Ice Cream Sandwich is in the hands on eager Bionic users.
Verizon Wireless is finally here. This is the Lucid by LG with 4G LTE and a dual-core processor all for one low price. This phone comes in a neat little package and will be available starting tomorrow. Lucky for you we have it on the test bench and did a quick hands-on and unboxing to start things off, and will be taking it through the trenches over the next few days.
LG Lucid on Thursday, March 29th. The mid-range Android phone will be a surprisingly low $79.99, making it a pretty good deal for a brand-new 4G LTE phone. Of course that price will require a new two-year contract, and (argh!) a mail-in rebate. Disappointingly but not surprisingly, the phone will launch with Android 2.3 Gingerbread (more than four months after the launch of Ice Cream Sandwich) but Verizon is already promising an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich - without giving a date. They're getting pretty good at that.
