LG Xenon coming to AT&T

A new LG media phone has been spotted, and will be out on the market by the end of the year, according to a BGR report. The LG Xenon handset sports a 2.8-inch, 240x480 LCD screen, which slides over to unveil a full QWERTY keyboard. It is apparently going through testing at AT&T, which will be the exclusive provider of the handset. The quad-band phone features 3G UMTS and HSDPA data support as well as assisted GPS and Wi-Fi.

An accelerometer and a proximity sensor are also said to be onboard. The sensor, in addition to the lack of a visible dedicated keypad, would indicate the LCD is a touchscreen, with the proximity sensor turning off the touch screen as users lift the handset to their ear, like with Apple's iPhone. Photos or videos captured by the integrated three-megapixel camera can be stored on the 100MB of internal memory or on a microSDHC card.

The handset interfaces with computers and gets charged via a USB 2.0 port. Bluetooth 2.0 is part of the spec-sheet, although it will not support wireless headsets or headphones.

There is no word on pricing information.

    LG Xenon is a good phone.

    As far as the Xenon’s touch UI goes, it’s pretty much par for the course—in fact, anyone who’s familiar with the touchscreen Vu will immediately recognize the same interface on the Xenon.

    And while the 3G-enabled handset comes with the plenty of messaging features (mobile e-mail, SMS/MMS, and instant messaging are supported), streaming video/music downloads, and one-way video conferencing over the two-megapixel camera, don’t look for smartphone capabilities here—indeed, even LG reps are careful not to call the Xenon a smartphone.
