LG Vortex in the Wild, minus FM Radio

The LG Vortex, that Verizon-bound Android device we told you about, has made another appearance. This time, the Vortex is without its FM Radio feature that was rumored to be included. But this isn’t that surprising when you look at the number of devices that have FM Radio capabilities in the U. S. On another note, it looks like the Vortex will use Bing search, similar to the Samsung Fascinate.  Most likely due to a deal Verizon inked with Bing.

The Vortex is still packing a 600 MHz processor, and according to our friends over at Engadget, it’ll be shipping with Froyo. These two things, combined with GPS, Bluetooth, and a 3.2-inch display make for a pretty decent handset. That is, if you can get over that whole Bing search problem. Still no pricing or launch dates, but keep an eye on AndroidGuys for the latest on this device. Anyone excited for this phone?
