LG Incite - Gets Reviewed

money1_

A great detailed review of LG's new device - LG Incite can be found in PocketNow.

I was never a big fan of LG as I had few "bad incidents" with their products, but hey, it's just me.

This device looks nice, covered with mirror surface. It doesn't come with a built in stylus, but unfortunately it is not completely finger friendly (you know the story... Windows Mobile...).

Here's a short video made by PocketNow:

Here's some examples of the shell application wrapping the home screen of the LG phone:
