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.

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.

Samsung has revealed new details of its Galaxy Z Fold2 foldable phone, the successor to last year's pioneering Galaxy Fold. While Samsung has improved or refined most aspects of the design — including the hinge — the much larger outer display stands out, having grown from 4.6 to 6.2 inches, and now protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.
In what has become something of an annual tradition, TCL has unveiled new, unique flexible-display concepts. The newest and most unique is the "360-Degree Ultra Flex", which has a 360º hinge that allows the device to be folded either inward or outward.

Cingular has announced it will launch a form of video calling this year. Confirming earlier statements by executives, the carrier announced it will let customers share video from the external camera, instead of face to face calling.
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...
never revealed ???
