Verizon’s LG Enlighten is an interesting phone, combining all that was successful with the LG Optimus One with a hardware keyboard. We’re sure it would have gotten a ton of looks at retail, but now that Walmart is said to be selling it for $.97 as evidenced by its appearance in this upcoming week’s product catalog, we’d say many-a new smartphone owner will get their hands on this one before considering anything else. It has a 3.2 inch display, a 3 megapixel camera and an 800MHz processor, and if LG makes this thing feel anything like the Optimus One, we can’t imagine that chipset would fail to handle Android + LG’s UI nicely. Be on the lookout for it starting Sunday, I suppose. [PhoneArena]
