LG CF360 now on AT&T
An entry-level sliding candybar from LG,the CF360, has popped up on AT&T's webstore without much fanfare recently. The quad-band GSM handset sports a 2-inch, 240x320 resolution display and access to AT&T's 3G data network that allows it to use the provider's Navigator turn-by-turn driving directions, real-time traffic alerts and maps. Users will also be able to download music via AT&T's Mobile Music Service, upload videos via Video Share or check the news, weather and more via AT&T's CV service.
The handset otherwise sports a 1.3-megapixel camera with video recording capabilities, and a microSD card slot that supports as much as 16GB of storage space. Supported music formats include MP3, AMR-NB, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+ and WMA10. An IM client support AOL, Yahoo and Windows Messenger services.
Available with red or blue highlights on its buttons, the CF360 costs just short of $30 with a two-year new contract and $50 mail-in rebate. Contract-free, the handset is priced at about $230.
