Alltel lauches LG Rhythm

Alltel Wireless along with LG Electronics announced the availability of the LG Rhythm music phone at the cell provider on Thursday. As its name suggests, the handset is intended for audiophiles as it comes equipped with a DSP and graphic equalizer tuned by home theater audio system designer Mark Levinson. An FM transmitter allows users to stream their music to nearby devices with FM tuners, or listen to their collections personally via a 3.5mm stereo headset connection. The included headset includes a microphone that allows for making and receiving phone calls without fishing the phone out of a pocket.

The Rhythm includes 120MB of internal memory for file storage, complementing it with a microSDHC card slot that can accommodate compatible memory cards up to 16GB in capacity. Music files are accessed by a dedicated hotkey and navigated via a 1-inch circular touchscreen. A background music mode can be selected. The 2-inch LCD display screen doubles as a viewfinder for the 1.3-megapixel camera with zoom and video recording functionality. GPS and Bluetooth 2.0 capabilities are part of the Rhythm's resume as well.

The LG Rhythm is available in black or white and priced at nearly $120 with an online discount and two-year contract as well as after a $50 mail-in rebate.
