AT&T today announced the newest addition to its Mobile TV lineup, the LG Arena. The LG Arena isn’t a new phone, having been launched a year ago, and LG has already replaced the device with a new flagship in the LG Mini, which Phone Scoop saw first hand at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The LG Arena arrives on U.S. shores with a 3”, WVGA touchscreen and 7.2Mbps HSPA networking. The phone uses LG’s own S-Class interface. For imaging, the LG Arena gets a 5-megapixel camera with auto focus and features to upload pics to popular social networking sites. Most importantly, though, the phone will use AT&T’s Mobile TV service. The LG Arena will be available online on February 26 and in stores on March 7. The phone will cost $199 with a contract agreement. AT&T’s Mobile TV is currently priced at $9.99 per month, though new users will get a 7-day trial to take the broadcast video service for a test run. Mobile TV now offers content from more than two dozen providers and content partners, including all the major U.S. TV networks.

Price Factor

a year-old phone at $200, who does AT$T think they're fooling? I promise you this phone will be half price in 3-6 months.
I agree, this would be have been a nice phone last spring or summer, but not now. And definitely not at $200!!!

I would sorta think different if it was like $79 or $50. Only saving grace is it uses media net, $15.00 or $10 with a family or unlimi...
