As reported a month or so ago, AT&T Mobile TV is the carrier's new live mobile TV service that will broadcast television shows to compatible phones via Qualcomm's MediaFlo network. At launch, the service will offer eight channels of programming--CBS Mobile, Comedy Central, ESPN Mobile TV, Fox Mobile, MTV, NBC 2G0, NBC News 2GO, and Nickelodeon--as well as two AT&T-exclusive channels called PIX and CNN Mobile Live. PIX will have shows from Sony Pictures Television … Read more
Messaging fans, rejoice! At long last, Verizon Wireless has announced the availability of the LG EnV(2), the long-awaited sequel to the LG EnV. It is, as you can see, a slimmed-down version of the original, but it still has a pretty roomy keypad and easy controls. Our only complaint is that its features (which include a 2-megapixel camera, a music player, and EV-DO support) don't stand out too much from the first EnV. Check out our in-depth review and let us know what you think. The LG EnV(2) is available for $129.99 after a two-year service … Read more
LG has just announced the latest addition to its Black Label series--think Chocolate-- the LG Secret. It's set to be a stylish new phone for fashonistas who want something that looks sexy and functions, er, sexy.
It's also going to be the slimmest 5-megapixel camera phone ever made, at 11.8 millimeters thick, with support for shooting video at 120fps into DivX format. There's also built-in photo and video editing features, including the rather alarming 'facial editing' and technology that automatically alters the lighting in a photo to produce a more enjoyable image.
Other features include … Read more
We just received the LG enV(2) in-house and are currently putting it through the rigors of the review process. As you'll recall, the enV(2) is the true successor to the LG enV VX9900--we originally thought it was the LG Voyager VX10000, but the Voyager turned out to be a complete makeover rather than an incremental facelift. Our thoughts on the enV(2) haven't changed much from our initial hands-on at CTIA; it's a slimmed-down version of the original enV for sure, and we especially like its sleeker, candybar external look and easy-to-use controls. After … Read more
An anonymous source just provided the Boy Genius Report some details on the upcoming AT&T Mobile TV that's set to debut in May. As you'll recall, AT&T Mobile TV will offer live over-the-air television via Qualcomm's MediaFLO, and will be offered first on the LG Vu and the Samsung Access. Well, the new details suggest that the service will launch on May 4, and will come in three flavors: Limited, Basic, and Plus. The Limited edition includes four channels (Fox Mobile, CBS Mobile, NBC, and NBC News) for $13 a month, the Basic … Read more
In what amounts to a cheap form of R&D, LG has launched an "Innovation Challenge" that invites the public to come up with a "dream phone." If you're the grand prize winner, you'll get the phone of your choosing, $10,000, a 52-inch LCD TV, and a HD DVD/Blu-Ray combo player. Of course, you'll probably have to give up all your rights to the design, but how many of you have the money to make your own phones anyway? Exactly. Better get cracking on those "dream phone" plans, … Read more
It's a popular opinion at Crave UK that South Korean company LG Electronics has made significant advances in its game over the last few years. We find its mobile phones to be as titillating as Kate Nash, and its MP3 players, while not ground-breaking, are at least stylish and touch-sensitive, also like Ms Nash. Rowr.
Lucky for our Nordic neighbors, then, that LG's giving them a new model of MP3 player to enjoy. It's called the T80 and among the what-we-expected-in-2007-not-2008 specifications, it supports DVB-T--the digital TV technology that Freeview is built upon. "You mean I … Read more
When it comes to LG Mobile and design, the Prada phones come to mind immediately for most people. But let's not forget the Black Label series which started with the Chocolate phone and was followed by the LG Shine. Pictures of the third handset in that series have now been revealed and, like the other two, it's a slider.
Though no official name has been given, this slider looks slimmer than the previous models. Pictures seem to suggest a mix of carbon fiber and leather in its finish, with a 5-megapixel camera on its back. According to Aving , … Read more
Every year at CTIA we dole out praise for those companies that are deserving. CNET's cream of the crop awards recognize the best of the show in four categories: best cell phone, best smartphone, best accessory, and best service. Though the 2008 CTIA wasn't the most exciting on record, we still saw some pretty cool things in Las Vegas. And without further ado, here they are.
LG had a very impressive showing at CTIA this year, especially with the LG enV(2) for Verizon Wireless and the LG Vu for AT&T. The LG Vu is the star of the show, with a full 3-inch touch screen interface that makes it a great device to debut AT&T's new live TV service called AT&T Mobile TV. It has a full HTML browser, a 2.0-megapixel camera, a music player, plus 3G support and access to AT&T Mobile Music and AT&T Video Share. The LG enV(2) is … Read more
