Excerpt: LG Lotus Elite Release Date - January 11, 2010 It’s happening. Just a few years ago only the most high-end of devices featured a touchscreen of any sort. Today it has worked its way into low-end devices like the LG Lotus Elite . Don’t get us wrong, this isn’t a knock on LG, but the trend has not only made its way to the masses but has made its way to non-traditional devices. The Lotus was as non-traditional as it got, at least when it came to design.
