CTIA 2005 Live coverage
LG's booth

LG was one of the companies that announced new phones at the CTIA show.  During CTIA 2004 we had the chance to preview the long awaited VX-8000. If some of you remember, PhoneArena.com was the first site to report on the existence of the VX-8000. We were also the first site to report about its successor – the VX-8100. In reality the VX-8100 is just slightly smaller then the 8000, but because of its rounded curves it looks much smaller. A major addition is the presence of Bluetooth, miniSD slot and MP3 player. The phone comes with 512 MB of internal memory, which makes it an excellent choice for a MP3 player, given that you can purchase additional miniSD card and pop it in. Other notable features are EV-DO high speed data, stereo speakers, Speaker Independent Voice recognition, CMOS 1.3 mega pixel camera, internal TFT 176 x 220 display with 262k colors and external TFT with 128 x 128.
The Vx8100 will be available from Verizon Wireless.

LG also showcased several lower end CDMA phones which should be available from SPRINT.

Starting with the vi-125 and PM-225 which are identical expect the vi-125 lacks VGA camera and external color display. The vi-125 is the update to the vi-5225 which is currently discontinued from Sprint. Unique feature of the Vi-125 is the ability to design and use avatars instead of picture called ID.
