Verizon Wireless roll out LG Decoy


Verizon Wireless and LG Electronics have teamed up to make the LG Decoy available to the masses – this is the first cell phone in the world that comes with an integrated Bluetooth hands-free headset, letting you speak while driving without running the risk of getting fined. Of course, the advantage of carrying it with you wherever you go is also huge, since I hate toting around more than I should, so combining both devices into a single package is but a brilliant thing to do. The docking port on the back of the phone is discreetly positioned, so you won’t have to risk embarrassing yourself whenever you whip out the LG Decoy in the presence of others.

This fashionable handset sports a two-tone finish with a glossy front, a satin back, and a 2.2″ mirror-like LCD screen. There is also a five-way directional joystick thrown in for navigation purposes, and operating on Verizon Wireless’ network, it makes navigating through the hottest multimedia features from Verizon Wireless even easier.
