A Look at the new LG Incite

Looks like LG is the latest manufacturer to join the touchscreen smartphone game with its latest release, the Incite. Available through AT&T, the Incite boasts Windows Mobile Professional 6.1, a 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen, onscreen QWERTY keyboard, 256 MB ROM/128 MB RAM and a 3-megapixel camera. There are numerous connectivity options. The Incite is a quad-band GSM phone with tri-band 3G Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 EDR and OTA firmware updates. You can edit Microsoft Office documents (Mobile Word, Excel, OneNote), View PowerPoints and Adobe® PDF attachments.

The Incite also comes equipped with a multitude of multimedia features including AT&T Mobile Music, XM Radio and Pandora Music Streaming. In addition, the LG Incite has a full-color LCD screen that auto-rotates as you turn it to display pictures.

Pricing? The Incite will cost you $199 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a two-year contract. Without a contract, you’re looking at about $500. This is a nice deviation from some of the more lackluster dumbphones we’ve been seeing from LG and we’re looking forward to seeing more smartphone support down the line. In the mean time, we’ve got some serious contemplating to do as it looks like the HTC’s Fuze might have some significant competition this holiday season.
