Cingular today officially launched its 3G video on demand service. Cingular Video will only work on 3G handsets such as those launched yesterday. Like video services from Sprint, Verizon and others, Cingular will offer clips of popular shows, sports highlights and music videos on demand. Subscribers will not need to pay any additional fees for most content as long as they are subscribed to the MEdia Works unlimited data plan. There will be an additional charge for some content such as HBO shows and music videos. Cingular also announced that the next two 3G handsets it will launch are the Nokia 6282 and LG CU500. LG has not shown off the CU500 before and little is known about this new handset.

Samsung today announced its lineup of flagship phones for 2022: the Galaxy S22 series.

video WILL work on 2G handsets
Maybe you mean the LG CU320 and not CU500
The Nokia 6282 should of been first but was pushed back due to the fact that the original version did not have the capabilities of receiving the 850Mhz WCDMA frequency.
The stats for the LG CU320 are available here.
Cingular currently offers 3G service on the LG CU320 or Samsung SGH-ZX10 handsets and will add the Nokia 6282 and LG CU500 to its 3G product line later this spring....
