The second phone I saw at the LG booth was definitely my favorite by far. The Vu caught my eye at first because I’m a sucker for touchscreens. However, it’s plethora of features are what kept me coming back.
This new phone will be debuting sometime later this year on AT&T’s network and will be offered in two different flavors: with TV and without. The TV playback functionality was incredible, after clicking on the icon it took maybe a second for the playback to begin. Changing channels was just as quick. The picture quality was excellent, and was totally watchable.
TV isn’t the only thing to love here, the touchscreen has haptic feedback, which basically means that when you touch the screen, the device vibrates slightly to let you know. This makes navigating the menus and sending text messages a breeze.
For internet options you’ll have their full HTML browser and a host of chatting options including AIM, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger. This is definitely a phone I would carry around.
