AT&T: Apple iPhone 3G

: LG Voyager, LG Dare, Samsung Glyde, LG Decoy

LG Vu (CU 915/920) - AT&T Wireless
Vu is AT&T's premiere Mobile TV phone, though it also comes in a less expensive version that's not compatible with the television service.  Both devices are sleek touchscreen phones that offer a nice, lightweight industrial design complimented by LG's attractive user interface.  Vu is a solid multimedia-focused handset that offers a nice alternative to touchscreen fans wanting something a little different than the iPhone.

Pros: Great design - thin, light, and sleek; 3" touchscreen with good response; 3G connectivity with Web, Email, and streaming a/v support; CU 920 supports Mobile TV service; 2MP camera

Cons: Touchscreen isn't quite as good as iPhone or LG Dare; Proprietary headphone jack; Mobile TV service still unavailable in many areas

Buying Advice
: Vu is a cool phone that offers a nice touchscreen and multimedia experience in a non-Apple package.  If you're interested in AT&T's Mobile TV service, Vu is the way to go - it offers the best mobile TV service I've yet seen.  Unfortunately I can't test it again until I leave town; AT&T doesn't yet offer mobile TV in the San Francisco Bay Area, and many other major markets.
