Perhaps in response to Google’s T-Mobile G1 (which is a T-Mobile exclusive), AT&T is getting ready to launch a new QWERTY phone too, built by LG and apparently named LG Xenon.
Boy Genius Report has uncovered a handful of details regarding the upcoming LG Xenon, plus a picture with the phone. Picture that, as far as I’m concerned, might be just a photoshopped image.
If you look carefully, you can see that the upper part of the supposed LG Xenon is larger than its lower part, where the call and end-call keys are situated. Not only that this doesn’t have any logic, but it would probably also make the handset weird when held in hand.
Anyway, the rumored specs of LG Xenon, apart from the full QWERTY keyboard seen above, are:
Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band UMTS/HSDPA connectivity
A 2.8 inch, 240 x 480 pixels display (most probably touch-enabled)
Wi-Fi and A-GPS
Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0
3 MP camera, sans autofocus but with VGA video recording
100MB of internal memory, expandable up to 16GB with a microSD / microSDHC card
105.5 x 53.5 x 15.8 millimeters
These specs are surely the ones of a good phone, so let’s hope the real look of Xenon is actually a bit different than what appears in the leaked picture.
AT&T should start selling the LG Xenon just before Christmas, for a price that’s currently not known.
