In yesterday’s post about the Samsung Instinct, we semi jokingly suggested that the Instinct was Sprint’s attempt to keep customers from jumping ship come July 11th. Apparently some readers were offended by the allegation and here at BGR we try not to make the same mistake twice. So with regards to Verizon’s newly-released LG Dare we’re going to keep this post serious. We will not say that like the Instinct, the Dare is Verizon’s attempt to wrangle would-be ship jumpers with a sleek touch-only handset. We will not make jokes about the familiar form factor or metal accents. No, dear friends, we will not say things like Verizon higher-ups would set their LG distribution contracts ablaze if it would result in even the slightest possibility of Apple cranking out an iPhone EV-DO. We’re better than that. In fact, we won’t even mention the iPhone a single time in this post. Nope, not one iPhone reference. So the LG Dare is now available for Verizon Wireless customers looking for some touchy goodness. Proximity sensor, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, 3.2 megapixel camera, EV-DO Rev A, HTML web browser; the Dare has all the goodies you can handle. Maybe. A click on the read link, $199 and a 2-year contract will get you in the door. Definitely a good option for the “keepin it real” crowd still paying homage to the CDMA networks of our fathers. Wait, was that a joke? Crap.
