Verizon Wireless has jumped the gun and launched the LG VX9400 today, mere days before the 2007 CTIA show in Orlando, Florida, next week. The second V Cast Mobile TV phone after the Samsung SCH-U620, the LG VX9400 is definitely the more anticipated of the two, if only because of its cool swivel display. As a refresher, the VX9400 features a 1.3-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, and EV-DO support. Of course, it also supports V Cast Mobile TV, Verizon's video service that lets you stream live television via Qualcomm's MediaFlo to your cell phone. You can buy one for $200 if you sign a new two-year service agreement with Verizon. Stay tuned for our full review of the other V Cast Mobile TV phone, the Samsung SCH-U620, sometime next week.
