ATT 3G Phone Relaunch
After a mysterious disappearance from AT&T's online store, the LG CU500v and Nokia N75 have both officially launched through the US carrier. Both are 3G-capable on AT&T's HSDPA network, but have their own special features. The CU500v is once again the carrier's first video calling phone with a swiveling camera that provides either 1.3-megapixel photos or one-way video chats; the Nokia model exchanges the video messaging for a sharper 2-megapixel camera and support for protected Windows Media files from online stores.
Both should be available now with prices depending on contracts. The N75 commands $200 when part of a two-year plan and can be picked up separately for $400; the CU500v's more modest hardware puts it on offer for as little as $50 with a contract or $250 for uncommitted or existing users.
