LG Sentio, dLite and GS170 will be T-Mobile USA’s first LG phones
T-Mobile is currently the only major US carrier that doesn’t offer LG phones, but that’s about to change soon, with the introduction of LG Sentio, LG dLite and LG GS170.
Announced today, the three phones should help LG to further expand its market share in the US (where the company is among the top three handset vendors).
Known in other parts of the world as LG GS500 Cookie Plus, the LG Sentio is a touchscreen phone with a 3 inch WQVGA (240 x 400) display, 3G, GPS, T-Mobile web2go, T-Mobile Social Buzz, MP3 player, Visual Voicemail support, and 3MP camera.
The LG dLite is essentially an LG Lollipop customized for T-Mo. It features an external LED display, “uniquely customizable edge-lit LED light colors and patterns”, a 2.8 inch QVGA internal display, 3G, Social Buzz, Visual Voicemail, and a 3MP camera. LG dLite will be available in “electric blue” and “bubblegum” (which I reckon is the pink version seen below).
Like the dLite, the LG GS170 is a clamshell, but it’s a fairly basic one, featuring Bluetooth 2.1, email, SMS, MMS, and a VGA photo camera.
T-Mobile didn’t announce any pricing info regarding its upcoming LG phones, but we’ll find out more about that “this summer” – when the handsets will be available for purchase.
