AT&T launches the LG Incite smartphone, $200 on contract

Only three days after launching the Samsung Eternity, AT&T has released another new Windows Mobile smartphone, this time made by LG.

LG Incite is the new handset and, like Eternity, it runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 and features a 240 x 400 pixels TFT touchscreen display (only a bit smaller: 3 inches, as opposed to the 3.2 inches of Samsung Eternity’s screen).

Available in the US exclusively from AT&T, the new WM handset from LG has a simple but quite unique design. It has only two hardware buttons on the front, the rest of them being arranged on the sides.

The specs of LG Incite include:

  • Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity, 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz
  • Tri band UMTS/HSDPA connectivity, 850 / 1900 / 21000 MHz
  • A-GPS and AT&T navigator
  • Wi-Fi
  • Web browser
  • Xpress Mail, Microsoft Direct Push
  • Microsoft Office Mobile
  • Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5
  • Music and video players
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • 3MP camera
  • Talk time: up to 8.7 hours
  • Standby time: 21 days
  • Weight: 4.23 ounces
  • Size: 4.21 x 2.2 x 0.55 inches
  • 256 MB ROM, 128 MB RAM
  • MicroSD and SDHC card support, up to 16GB

AT&T sells the LG Incite for $199.99, but only after a $100 mail-in rebate and the signing of a 2-yr contract agreement. Otherwise, the handset costs $499.99.
