If you’re into the new-fangled text messaging and mobile social networking craze, AT&T’s wants to make all that tap-tapping a little easier on your thumbs. AT&T is continuing its push to expand its messaging-oriented handset lineup with the new LG GR500 Xenon. With a 2.8-inch touchscreen that slides sideways to reveal a QWERTY keyboard, a 2-megapixel camera, GPS, microSD card slot and Bluetooth, the LG Xenon combines the best of the touchscreen world with a messaging-friendly keyboard.
The quad-band (850/900/1800/1900Mhz) GSM handset supports 3G data connectivity at HSDPA speeds, which makes the case for the LG Xenon handling its own as a multimedia-capable messaging phone. The AT&T LG Xenon is now available through AT&T’s online storefront for $99.99 on 2-year contract.
