LG announced their video-centric VX9400 for Verizon, featuring a sliding, rotating screen that snaps into horizontal "widescreen" mode for viewing. The video content comes by way of the MediaFLO-powered VCast service. It's quite a slick looking device (save for the transistor radio-esque antenna) and could help push Verizon further out front as the king of wireless entertainment in the states. While I'm not yet convinced that I want to watch TV on a cell phone, this handset made it appealing. No word on a release date or price point.
At Uneviled, LG had their full line of US carrier phones on display, including the Verizon enV VX-9900, the slimmer, lighter, more feature-packed successor to the V. The glossy black VX8600 flip phone and HSDPA-enabled CU500V were also on the table at Unveiled. LG reps told me their entire line of international handsets including the new "Shine" will be on display in their main booth Monday. There also may be a US version of Shine on display as well; the rumor going around is that it could be a slider phone.
