The LG Lotus Elite, successor to the popular original Lotus, was introduced this morning at CES — and we were drawn by its impressive wideness and decided to yell over some bumpin’ beats to give it a quick video look over right on the show floor.
The Lotus Elite, introduced alongside the Rumor Touch, sports an external 2.4″ resistive touchscreen and twin internal non-touch screen. The wide-bodied phone, reminiscent of the original Lotus, allows you to access texts, emails, voicemail, pictures, favorite contacts and more from the external screen. After flipping open the Lotus Elite, you’ll be greeted by the familiar Sprint One Click interface with the usual social networking integration, personalization options, Google tools, and web functions.
LG’s latest feature phone has a comfortable QWERTY keyboard, 2-megapixel camera/camcorder, stereo Bluetooth and a microSD card slot that supports up to a 32-gigabyte card. Unfortunately, there’s only a 2.5mm headphone jack (no standard-size 3.5mm jack) and the Lotus Elite is not 3G-capable.
