Alltel has just announced the LG Rhythm, a music phone almost in the style of the LG Chocolate with the middle scroll wheel and the slider form factor. The wheel is touch-sensitive with an "interactive user interface," plus it comes equipped with a 1.3-megapixel camera, an MP3 player with FM transmitter, voice dialing, GPS, and a microSD card slot.
On the music front, the Rhythm claims 3D sound capabilities, plus it claims to have Digital Signal Processing with a graphic equalizer tuned by Mark Levinson. It also has a 3.5-mm headset jack and stereo Bluetooth.
The LG Rhythm is available Thursday in both black and white for $119.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a two-year service agreement.
