LG Wine clamshell offered
Wireless provider US Cellular is now offering a new LG clamshell, the UX280 Wine. The mid-range phone offers a 2.2-inch main display with 240x320 resolution along with a 1.3-inch external LCD. Users also get assisted GPS, Bluetooth and a 1.3-megapixel camera. Ease of use is another strong point, as there are four shortcut keys under the display for quick access to messaging, alarm clock, contacts and favorites menus.
The numbers on the keypad take up nearly the entire height of each button, while the size of the fonts on the screen can be adjusted. A speakerphone and built-in microphone allows users to issue voice commands to the handset.
Available in Wine red or silver, US Cellular is selling the LG UX280 Wine for $180 on its own, or for $30 after rebates and a two-year contract that includes a voice and data plan. [via PhoneScoop]
