The LG Neon is a basic phone from AT&T.

We missed this because of all the Apple news, but today AT&T also released a new phone, called the LG Neon. We had a hands-on with the Neon a few months ago during CTIA 2009 in Las Vegas. It's already been out for awhile in Canada from Rogers. Well, it looks like we finally have the chance to nab the Neon here, and if you like simple QWERTY phones, you might want it. The Neon has a 2-megapixel camera, a touch screen (but only for the number keypad--which we find strange), a microSD card slot, and Bluetooth. It's no fancy 3G touch-screen phone like the LG Xenon, but for $30 with a new, two-year contract, it's not bad. Look for our review of the Neon later this week.
