>> Nicole: I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the LG VX8360 it is a compact clamshell and it is
a successor to the LG VX8350 that was released 2 years ago. As you can see it looks like a very simple compact clamshell but inside
this very simple form factor is a load of high-end features but let's look at the outside first. As you can see on the front it's
a very simple 1 inch external display, underneath that is the external music player keys as well as the external speaker grill right
here. On the side is the dedicated camera key as well as a microSD card slot. On the other side is the headset jack, a volume rocker
as well as the voice command button. Flip it open and you get a very nice, very saturated, very colorful 2 inch display here. Underneath
that you do get a typical navigation array as well as a very nice and easy to use number keypad. Even though it looks like a very
simple clamshell it has a load of features, for example, they include the EVDO support, access to Verizon's V Cast Video which is
Verizon's online video streaming service as well as V Cast Music which is a Verizon online music store so you can purchase and download
music over the air for under $2.00. You also get stereo Bluetooth which is really handy for the music player, of course. You also
get GPS so you can access Verizon's VZ Navigator which is Verizon's location based turn by turn service. So overall a very full-featured
phone for only $50.00 with a 2 year service agreement from Verizon. My name is Nicole Lee this has been the LG VX8360.
