AT&T to offer LG ARENA with Mobile TV
The LG ARENA has been one of the Korean based manufacturer's top selling models with over 5 million units sold as of last summer. The ARENA, it seems, has succeeded in just about every spot on the globe, but yet was never offered in the U.S. That is, until now. Back in January, we reported that a variant of the ARENA for AT&T had been pictured and the story turned out to be 100% on the money. AT&T will start offering the featurephone with online sales starting February 26th for $249.99 with a 2 year contract. A $50 rebate knocks down the price to $199.99. On March 7th, the rest of AT&T's sales channels will be offering the ARENA. Based on a leaked photo, it looks like Best Buy will be offering the phone for $149.99 with the 2 year contract and $399.99 off contract.

AT&T is adding its Mobile TV service to the handset which will allow you to watch your shows on the 3 inch WVGA touchscreen display. The ARENA features the cube-centric LG S-class UI and a 5MP camera with AF which was much more impressive when the device was originally debuted at the MWC. That was last year's MWC, of course. Other features include support for AT&T Navigator, GPS, Wi-Fi and 8GB of internal storage that can be increased thanks to the microSDHC slot.

All of those Americans who were jealous of those other countries that had the LG Arena can now stop being green. And while LG already has introduced the LG Arena Max with a 1GHz Snapdragon chip under the hood, first things first. The original Arena model has to get the opportunity to show what it can do with the Red, White and Blue.

It's because the ppl wanting something practical are in the majority and the kids wanting the latest gadgets are in the minority..simple. BTW, video calling isn't as great as it may seem, even in Europe where almost every phone can do video calling, ppl just don't use it as much as we'd think. So, trust me, we're not really missing out on much =]

Just when I was bout to get this phone and find out they weren't using ANDROID Os in it. I say forget it cause their using old software no Android. Phone is like crap now. AT&T you still disgust me the way you keep getting all ugly old phones. Plus who would spend 200$ on a phone that you can only watch TV on it.
