LG woos T-Mobile with three new phones
It looks like T-Mobile will be getting three new phones from LG this year. We're not talking about the LG Ally or any crazy smart/super phones to keep you holding your breath, so, what's the big deal you ask? How about the fact that these will be the first LG phones ever to be sold on T-Mobile. It's hard to believe they've not done business before, but the two companies will be introducing the LG Sentio, Lg dLite, and the LG GS170 to T-Mobile's current lineup of phones. The Sentio is the only one of the three with a touchscreen, and it also offers a 3MP camera, access to T-Mobile's 3G network, GPS, and more. The LG dLite has a hidden LED matrix for displaying alerts along with Social Buzz, 3G and a surprisingly large (for a flip phone) 2.8 inch screen. The dLite comes with two color choices, electric blue and bubblegum. The GS170 is another flip phone that offers MP3 ringtones, Bluetooth, and standard support for SMS, MMS, and e-mail. All three phones will be available this summer in T-Mobile retail stores or via the T-Mobile website. Maybe this relationship with LG could become more fruitful down the line? Any thoughts?
