Today, Rogers Wireless officially launched the LG Neon 2 feature phone. The device is a pale, full-QWERTY, messaging phone with a 2 megapixel camera with 2x zoom, 3-inch 240 x 400 QQVGA TFT touch-screen display, micro-SD card slot, and Bluetooth. The device does not have an HSPA radio, which is sort of a bummer, but does come with quad-band GSM. The device will set you back a whopping $19.99 CAN with a three-year contract or $174.99 contract free. And now you know… More →
Have you been pondering the idea of switching to AT&T lately but you haven’t been able to find the motivation needed to actually take the plunge? Well say hello to your push. Today, for one day only, Amazon.com is offering every single AT&T handset outside of the iPhone for 1¢ — that’s right, 1¢. Whatever it is your little heart desires — be it the BlackBerry Bold or Curve 8900, the Samsung Impression or Eternity, the LG Xenon or Neon, or anything else — is available for a single penny today. The pricing applies to new customers and requires a new 2-year contract of course, but come on… A penny. Amazon is also offering to waive your activation fee (normally $36) as well as provide free 2-day shipping. Any takers?

Well would you look at that — AT&T has gone ahead and announced six new handsets including the Nokia E71x, LG Neon and Xenon, Samsung Magnet, Propel Pro and Impression just days before CTIA Wireless gets underway in Las Vegas. Starting off with the biggest and baddest of the bunch, the Nokia E71x, the sexy fully-QWERTY S60 device we are sure everyone is more than familiar with now due to a series of Bold-esque delays, will be available to customers “in the coming weeks” for the amazingly cool price of $99.99. Next up on the block is the Samsung Propel Pro, a device we scooped not too long ago. Powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 and featuring a sliding full-QWERTY keypad and Wi-Fi, the Propel Pro will be available starting April 14 for $149.99. After that we have the LG Xenon, a device which captured our attention just yesterday when it was first spotted in the wild. If, of course, features a touchscreen display, sliding QWERTY keypad, 2 megapixel camera, GPS and HSDPA connectivity. Look for it April 8 for $99.99. Now on to some low-end devices. First up is the Samsung Impression with it’s 3.2″ AMOLED display and 3 megapixel camera. It will go for $199.99 come April 7.
Mobile World Congress might not be for another couple of weeks but that doesn’t mean we have to wait to see some new handsets work their way out through the cracks, or leaks as it were. Here we have another glimpse at a new handset, this time on its way to the US courtesy of LG and AT&T. No, it’s not the sexiest gear in the room, but you can expect the LG Neon to be the envy of tween texters across the country. Start with a painful color palette, mix in some QWERTY slider, add one 2.4″ touchscreen and you’ve got yourself a handset that can woo a 14-year-old girl like it was Justin Timberlake. Release timing and pricing are still a mystery at this point but expect it to be priced well enough for parents of tween girls to give in after a few days of incessant begging.
