With Wireless Sync, customers can synchronize their enV with a home or office PC for easy access to new emails, calendar, contact, and task information. Additionally, the enV is equipped with a powerful 2.0 megapixel camera. Not only will it take remarkably clear images and videos (320x240), but also it boasts a convenient autofocus function and bright flash so users will be able to capture memorable moments on the go.
“By showing off its full set of mobile entertainment features, the enV makes it easier than ever for Verizon Wireless customers to stay connected while enjoying music, videos and email in one slim package,” said Mr. Jeff Hwang, senior vice president of marketing and product strategy, LG Electronics MobileComm Inc. “As yet another progression in mobile phone technology, the enV signifies a giant step forward for LG in our pursuit to provide cutting-edge devices to Verizon Wireless' tech savvy consumers. Through listening to consumer demand we’ve taken a great product like The V and made it even better by adding a higher-resolution camera with lens cover, expanded music capability through Bluetooth stereo headset functionality and re-designed it to fit comfortably fit in the palm of your hand.”
Already equipped with VZ NavigatorSM -capabilities, the enV is ready for the road.
