It's one of the first phones to offer AT&T Mobile TV, a 3-inch-wide touch-screen display, a 2-megapixel camera, and of course access to AT&T services like AT&T Mobile Music. Although curiously, the LG Vu still isn't available for sale online, but perhaps it will soon.

Remember the LG Vu? Yeah, that's one of the first phones to offer AT&T's live Mobile TV service. We haven't heard a lot about it since its debut oh-so-many months ago, but apparently AT&T is set to reintroduce it to the public with a brand new purple hue that looks like a wine color.
If you'll recall, the LG Vu has a really nice 3-inch-wide touch-screen display, with HSDPA, and a 2.0-megapixel camera. It'll likely still be available for around $100, but we oddly can't find it for sale … Read more
As expected, Samsung has added support for HD streaming of Netflix video to its BD-P2500 and BD-P2550 players. The upgrade is available as a free firmware update (players should automatically prompt users to install the software update, or DIYers can download it from Samsung's support site and burn it to disc). Still no word on the promised DTS-HD Master Audio support for these players, but that will likely come in a subsequent firmware update soon.
The Netflix HD catalog is currently just a fraction of Netflix's streaming selection (300 titles out of around 12,000), but it will … Read more
Last week, we told you about LG's first foray into the U.S. smartphone market with the LG Incite. Today, we have the review. We're not crazy about its curious name (though it does make for corny blog entry titles), but we do have to say it's a pretty decent Windows Mobile smartphone, especially if you're into touch-screen handsets.
The LG Incite is as reflective as the LG Shine, but with a large 3-inch touch screen instead.
The gorgeous QVGA display seems to blend in with the rest of the phone's surface, and when the … Read more
Not that the LG Prada II will make it stateside any time soon, but LG has recently launched a celebratory microsite for the Prada II, officially welcoming it into the world (Flash haters beware; the site is very Flash heavy).
As you might recall, the device has some pretty impressive features--dual-band HSDPA, quad-band GSM, Wi-Fi, a full HTML browser, stereo Bluetooth, FM radio, TV-out, a document viewer, 60MB of internal memory plus a microSD card slot, a 5-megapixel camera, and a luscious-looking 3-inch capacitive multitouch display with active Flash UI (we're almost certain the iPhone has a patent on … Read more
LG and AT&T just introduced the Incite, the first-ever LG smartphone for the U.S. market.
Equipped with Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, the Incite comes with a host of high-end features like GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, a 3.0-megapixel camera with built-in camcorder, and access to AT&T 3G services like AT&T Mobile Music and AT&T Video Share.

The design is quite attractive, as well. It … Read more

Updated at 12:40 p.m. PST with Dell's comments and historical perspective on Apple iMac shortages due to lack of LCD flat panel displays.
LG Display, Sharp, and Chunghwa Picture Tubes agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges for participating in a liquid crystal display price-fixing conspiracy and pay $585 million in fines, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday.
The three companies worked in concert to set prices on thin-film transistor LCDs, which are used in computer monitors, notebooks, televisions, mobile phones, and various electronics, according to the antitrust unit of the Justice Department.
Apple, Dell, … Read more
