2006 Holiday Pre-Preview
Finally, Sprint also gave us a sneak peek at the new LG LX-150:
It's an entry-level phone with Bluetooth. It does support the DUN profile (which Sprint calls "phone as modem"). Even nicer, it supports Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, for faster DUN connectivity - in theory - although it's not EV-DO, so it might not help much, if at all.

It has a clean, stylish design with an internal antenna. It's also tri-mode, so it has the increasingly rare analog capability. Speakerphone is present as well.
Sprint says they are aiming this one at the text message crowd. It's their first phone with a dedicated "TEXT" key.
We'd love to tell you more about the 150, but Sprint left the battery out so we couldn't power it up.
Look for Sprint to launch the LX-150 about the same time as the Samsung M500: early November, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
