LG Xenon (AT&T)

Phones
>> Nicole Lewis: The LG Xenon looks like an ordinary touch screen phone but it has a slide out QWERTY keyboard for easier text messaging. My name is Nicole Lewis associate editor at CNET.com and this is a first look at the LG Xenon from AT&T. On the front here is a nice 2.8 inch touch screen display and underneath it are 3 keys. The send key, the task manager key that lets you tab between open applications, and the end power key. On the back is the camera lens and LED flash but there is no self portrait mirror. Slide it open and you will get a very roomy and tactile QWERTY keyboard. If you like dedicated keys for messaging an [inaudible] sign key and a dot com key among others. The touch screen interface has a few goodies that sets it apart from other touch screen phones. It's up to 3 customizable stand-by screens. One is for your favorite contacts. One is for the home screen and the other is for your favorite application shortcuts. For the home screen you can drag and drop up to 6 widgets from the expandable tray. As for your contacts just follow the instructions to select your favorite contact from your phone book. The contact will appear as a visual icon on the screen. You can have up to 3 pages of favorite contacts. For the application shortcuts just hold down the icon and you'll be prompted to delete or add shortcuts. Along the bottom of each standby screen are 4 shortcut icons to the phone dialer, the contacts list, the messaging menu and the main menu interface. The menu interface is divided into 4 tabs; Phone, multimedia, my stuff and settings. Tap the top of any screen on the Xenon and you will see a drop down interface LG's calling the enunciator. It provides quick access to things like the music player, the Bluetooth toggle, ring and vibration profiles, voicemail, the message inbox, mobile email, IM, the alarm clock and the calendar. Features of the phone include a 2.0 megapixel camera with camcorder, GPS, a music player, stereo Bluetooth, speaker input and of course text messaging, mobile email and instant messaging. Do note that the mobile email only works with certain email providers and you have to use the web interface to access your email. It isn't compatible with pop or iMaps, so it's not very flexible. It's also a full HTML browser. It's a decent browser for the most part, but you won't get any flash support here. The smaller screen size makes for a poorer browsing experience as well. Since you have to scroll and pan around a lot more to read the webpage. You can also switch between different tabs or browser windows. The LG Xenon has 3G or HSDPA speeds. The LG Xenon is available for 99.99 from AT&T. I'm Nicole Lewis this has been the LG Xenon. ^M00:02:46 [ Music ]
