Verizon debuts the LG Dare for $200

Starting tomorrow, Verizon Wireless will begin selling the LG Dare, a new media phone with a 3.2-megapixel camera and high quality video recording, for $200 for a $50 mail-in rebate and two-year contract.  If that $200 pricetag sounds familiar that's because it's the same price as AT&T's highly anticipated 3G iPhone, which will go on sale July 11. 

Like other iPhone-type phones, the Dare has a touchscreen and uses Verizon's EVDO network. In addition, it has many of the high-end features you'd expect such as Verizon's VZ Navigator service, SMS and MMS. In addition, the Dare streams video from Verizon's VCAST service, syncs with Windows Media Player on PCs, and lets you download music over the air from Verizon's music store.
