LG today revealed part of its U.S. CDMA and GSM lineup for 2006:

All above phones are expected to be available this quarter (June or earlier). LG will also announce the DM-L200 phone for Disney Mobile at CTIA, and re-confirmed that it plans to bring its sleek "Chocolate" phone to the U.S. by the end of 2006.

Music, music, music...

...who cares about music on their phone? I certainly don't. I realize there's a niche, but adding music capability to a phone I'd otherwise buy is just maddening.
get used to it
That was the original reaction to Camera phones.

i like that lg 550

I've been waiting for a phone with an fm modulator for so long. I love the feature list, but ya think its gonna suck like other sprint LGs? or might it be good like verizon LGs?
I just don't see what you are talking about? Suck in what ways? Try explaining yourself! I work in the industry and I can tell you Sprint LG's have excellent reception and good clear earpieces. I don't have any experience with the Verizon LG's...
I like the 550 too, and from what I've seen on this forum, a lot of people do as well. An FM tuner would be great and the design reminds me a lot of my LG VX-7000. Really a beautiful phone. I may consider getting that one with my new every two deal...
I think Product Pride is important (that you believe in the product you sell).

but the bottom line is $$$. The more you sell the more you make.

The 125 was the best selling phone at SPrint PCS at one time and the 225 was the best after that.

Where's the Palms?

It's been a year since LG licensed the Palm OS for their phones.

I am assuming this phone is coming to VZW because of the VX in front of it. And if it is I have found my new phone!!!
all LG phones for verizon have the 'VX' infront of the model number. So to answer your question. Yes it will be out for Verizon. Probably not out until Q3 from what I've seen.
i cant wait i got the 8100 great phone cant wait for this to drop the only thing i don't think we will see till sept. or around there i work for VZW and they take for to test there new stuff so i hope the sooner the better Very Happy

Go LG!

LX-550 looks cool Very Happy
I like the look of the 8300 also good to know it's thinner the 8100 was just to bulky imo Smile
I agree. Adding the FM transmitter is a cool idea. I think Sony Ericsson sells something like that as an accessory but to have it built right in is awsome. I also like the faceplate thing, there are too many phones that are pretty cool but I just dont...
Yep looks promising...with this and the new RAZR V3m.

Is the LG VX8300 the gray phone in the picture with the music buttons?

Got Antenna?

LG needs to realize that external antenna's are not very appealing these days...especially when they aren't necessary. Why do all of their phones have them? Get with the program already. Rolling Eyes
W/ an internal antenna, you are stuck w/ what you have as far as reception goes. W/ an external retractable antenna, you can at least draw the antenna and see if you gain another bar (maybe enough to get the call out).

Why the switch?? I know its smaller than the minisd, but is there any other reason for them to switch. I thought the minisd format came in higher capacity cards than micro, or at least they do right now...
What switch? The 535 at Sprint was microSD a year ago... Besides it is WAAAY smaller and easier to implement size-wise into todays tiny phones...

Look Fimilar...???

The LG-550's outer music buttons look just like the iPod's click wheel.

hidden external display?

what exactly does that mean?
It means that the outside casing of the phone is a tinted acrylic like material and when the front display is not on you can't tell it is really there. If you check the specs/pics of the phone on the site here you should be able to see what I am talki...
As in the Nokia 7380?
