LG Vu out today for ATT
Well taking a break from our zzzPhone reviews, here is something new for ATT- the LG Vu. Believe it or not this is an iPhone competitor on ATT’s own network as this phone is designed exactly like the iPhone in that it is pretty much all touch screen. I actually was able to see the phone in person and have to say it is very small, shiny and light, but still has a 3 inch touchscreen, 2 megapixel camera with video recording, music player, full internet browser, ATT Video Share, 3G (which the iPhone is missing), as well as the big feature- ability to watch live TV on ATT’s new Mobile TV service. Channels on this new Mobile TV service include ESPN, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, and an ATT exclusive PIX movie channel, along with a few other channels. The Vu also got a higher rating than the iPhone from the editors at Cnet.com, coming in with an 8.3 rating compared to the iPhone’s 8.0.
LG Vu and iPhone
There will be 2 versions of the phone available- one with the TV and one without. Only the TV one came out today, and it costs $300 with the $100 mail in rebate, and if you want the TV service, that will add in an extra $15 a month in most cases. You can get the phone from your local ATT store or ATT’s mobile website.
Btw all you Verzion users- don’t worry you’ll supposedly have a similar phone in the LG Dare (all touchscreen with 3G, 3.2 megapixel camera, Mp3 player) this summer.
