The new LG Shine CU720 is by far the thinnest and highest-end 3G phone for AT&T. It has a relatively large screen with resolution of 320×240, which is the standard for most of smartphones like the Pantech Duo these days. What you can find in this sleek smart phone is the 2 megapixel camera – good for casual picture taking, HSDPA data – must faster than EDGE, if you are getting a pda phone, HSDPA is a must for video sharing and web browsing.A generous 70 MB of internal memory can be supplemented with memory cards up to 4 GB, which, I think is sufficient. The new LG music phone comes in grey/silver or red. Regular price is $299. With a 2-year contract lowering it to $149. And after rebate it will cost you just $99 at att.com/wireless. And you might be able to find one on sale on other wireless stores online.
The Nokia N95 already comes in black and bronze, not it’s available in red. The price is still hefty – $699. Luckily it’s unlocked, so you can use it with any GSM carriers, AT&T and T-Mobile. With other Nokia phone such as the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic selling for $0 with a 2-year contract, it just doesn’t make sense to pay $700 for a phone. I personally like Nokia phones, but when it comes to smartphones, they never appleal to me or any large and smart organization in North America. First it’s the price point, with Blackjack II released last year that costs $0 after rebates and companies often paying for your Blackberry phone, who is willing to put down $700 for a device that is very likely to be outdated in 2 years?
