Jul 14, 2006, 12:16 PM by (staff)
LG has launched a web site for the CU500, a new 3G phone previously mentioned by Cingular but never revealed. The CU500 is a slim metallic clamshell with a rotating 1.3 megapixel camera in the hinge. It has HSDPA 3G data, which is up to 5 times faster than the UMTS data used in Cingular's first 3G phones. It also has a wide variety of multimedia applications designed to take advantage of the higher data speeds and advanced capabilities of this phone. These include a Cingular Video player for purchased clips, MobiTV for streaming video and audio, and a music player with external playback controls. The CU500 also features a Micro SD slot, stereo Bluetooth (A2DP), and over the air software updates. The Samsung ZX-20, which also has HSDPA, is expected on Cingular soon as well. Today Cingular also launched 3G services for San Antonio, Texas.

ITS A SAMSUNG A900!
still a cool looking phone tho, too bad cingular got it
To bad you aint got chocolate
i got one
I live in an HSDPA market, so far the network speed is pretty impressive. Doesn't come with any accessories, just the charger and manual.
Music player is pretty cool, but i need to get a memory card so i can store more than 1-2 songs and some bluetooth headphones.
looks like there is about 15mb of memory, of which ~8mb is available.
camera seems to take decent pictures.
weight size is pretty similar to RAZR, although a bit narrower and a bit thicker, but not much.
Looks like DUN is also enabled (f-u verizon!) so i'm hoping it will do a decent job with my macbook pro.
also works well with my motorola bluetooth headset. looks like it was about 1/2 charged out of the box and it is still running with 1 ba...
