LG Muziq at Sprint

Sprint today hoped to bolster its music phone lineup with the LG-created Muziq, a media-oriented clamshell that adds multiple firsts to the company's phone lineup. The handset is the first from the provider to include a high-capacity microSD slot; owners can slip a 4GB card in the phone, doubling the peak 2GB of most earlier phones and providing ample room for songs bought from the Sprint Music Store or for photos and movies captured with the 1.3-megapixel camera. An FM transmitter is also onboard for beaming audio directly to a car stereo or any nearby radio. Other music touches involve dedicated, iPod-like external controls, stereo Bluetooth and Pandora Mobile support for customized Internet radio streams through EVDO.

The Muziq supports many of the carrier's more advanced general services as well, including streaming on-demand TV and assisted GPS for car navigation. The phone arrives on July 15th bundled with a 64MB microSD card and should sell for $99 when bought with a two-year contract.
