At long last, Sprint users have something to get really excited about. The LG Lotus ($149) is a full-on messaging phone with a bubbly QWERTY keyboard. Featuring a 2-megapixel camera and camcorder, a music player with external controls and a customizable user interface that lets you organize eight shortcuts right on the landing screen (very iPhone-esque). But what's most interesting about this phone is its unique design, a square body that's surprisingly slim and easy to handle, in sleek black or textured purple.
