FCC Approves Next Cingular 3G Phone
Apr 20, 2006, 1:19 AM by (staff)
Last month, when Cingular officially launched its 3G service, the carrier announced the LG CU500 would be one of the next models to be released for the network. The FCC this week approved the LG CU500, unveiling a few more details about the phone. The handset will be quad-band GSM and WCDMA 850/1900. The FCC filings do not reveal whether the CU500 is UMTS or HSDPA. They do confirm that the phone has Bluetooth, a MicroSD card slot, and a 1.3 Megapixel camera that rotates in what appears to be the hinge of a clamshell-style body.

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.

Samsung today announced its lineup of flagship phones for 2022: the Galaxy S22 series. The top-end S22 Ultra sees the biggest changes as it essentially absorbs Samsung's Note series with an integrated S Pen stylus and a more Note-like shape and design, instead of the Contour Cut design of the other models.

Good job, LG
Another thing that I like about this phone is the camera. As much as I wish every camera phone had the Nokia N90's rotating camera design, it's nice to see the rotating camera between the hinges make a comeback. I'm still using the LG VX7000 and I like the rotating camera a lot more than the ones that have them fixed on the top half of the clamshell.
It's about time somebody made a phone that operates on more than just a couple bands. Hopefully we'll start seeing more badass phones that can be unlocked and transferred between sprint and verizon.
I like the SAMSUNG A990 better!!!
