Part of me feels like saying, “LG Arena! Last stop, AT&T!” After all, this handset has been announced well over a year ago and it’s been available in other countries for quite some time. Of course, if you’ve been keeping up you’ll know that Best Buy is getting the Arena very soon for a modest price with a contract. Need a reminder for the perks and features that come with this phone?
The Arena is going to come packed with AT&T’s Mobile TV, which includes ABC, Comedy Central, ESPN, NBC, MTV and a whole lot more. I suppose that’s good news for you TV junkies. It’s also capable of HSDPA 7.2Mbps, but that won’t concern anyone for a while since AT&T’s network can barey handle 1.5Mbps on speedy handsets like the iPhone 3GS.
LG has slapped on its S-Class 3D user interface to make navigation a little prettier. It has a 3-inch WVGA display and it can shoot DVD quality videos. If you want to pick one up at AT&T, it’s $199.99 with a two-year contract after a $50 mail-in-rebate. I say you just pick one up at Best Buy for $50 less without the hassle of rebates.
