LG Dare: iPhone's Nearest Knockoff Competition

Other phones have tried hard to beat (or at least match) the iPhone at the touch screen game. None have come as close as the new Dare, from LG. I had a chance to get some hands-on time with it last week. Apple, watch out.

After spending some time with the LG Dare, it's hard not to come away impressed. It's a slim and pocketable touch phone with a vastly revised user interface when compared with other LG touch devices, such as the Voyager. Like the iPhone, the Dare forgoes most buttons. It has just three along the bottom edge of the phone, and the usual controls on the phone's side. The screen is nicely sized at 3 inches and it is plenty bright.
