LG Xenon and Neon for ATT

Rounding out AT&T's phone launches for CTIA are a pair of expected LG touchscreen devices. The Xenon is LG's take on a mainstream touch device with a full QWERTY slider and gets a 2.8-inch, 240x480 LCD for most input in addition to its keyboard. It stands above some mid-range phones with a 2-megapixel camera, 3G over HSPA and assisted GPS defining the rest of its feature set. AT&T delivers the Xenon on the 8th for $100 after linking it to a 2-year plan.

Less demanding users will get access to the Neon. Already launched on Rogers in Canada, the phone mixes a smaller 2.4-inch touchscreen with QWERTY input. While it keeps the 2-megapixel camera, it sacrifices 3G to lower the price. AT&T isn't specific on its release and says only that the phone will have a low price and launch sometime in the next few weeks.

    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.
