LG Arena coming to Best Buy, extremely late to the party

How excited can you get over a phone that was announced at last year’s Mobile World Congress and whose successor, the LG Arena Max, has already been spotted in the wild? Perhaps a $149.99 price point, a slick 3D UI, 5-megapixel camera and HSDPA 7.2Mbps? Yeah, I didn’t think so, either.

After seeing this slide, I got pretty excited thinking it might be the LG Arena Max with the 1GHz Snapdragon processor, but it doesn’t appear to be that way. The official announcement for the handset hasn’t even been made yet.

As of last summer, the LG Arena did so well worldwide that over 5 million units were sold and the device is still currently available everywhere but the U.S. it seems. If you don’t mind having last year’s product, you can pick one up at Best Buy soon for just $150 with a two-year contract with AT&T.
