AT&T to offer the LG Etna and the Samsung Shift
Seems like the affordable texting devices are up for a long life-span. The AT&T versions of the KS360 - the LG GT365 Etna, which we have informed you about some time ago, when the phone was still bearing the codename of Neon, and the Samsung Shift have both been video previewed at, which means that the carrier will have something new to offer to its hardcore texting customers.

The LG GT365 Etna’s key features include a side-sliding full QWERTY keyboard and a touch screen dialing capability. On the other hand, the Samsung Shift does not boast of a “touch screen”, but it may just attract some audience on its side too, thanks to its comfortable front-facing QWERTY. 

Here you can watch the videos of the LG Etna and the Samsung Shift.

Flipping open a phone to see a keyboard is too much work. When you can just quickly slide it up.

I really wish ATT came out with another High-end phone instead of all the mid to low-end phones. ATT needs to let go of the IPHONE. The eternity is a nice alternative, but there is better out there.

Well, look at it this way, America is in a recession and not every new AT&T customer can or will shell out an arm and a leg for a high end phone at the moment.
