LG officially shows the Arena
LG Arena KM900 seems to be the latest attempt of the Korean manufacturer to create a powerful multimedia phone with touch screen. After unofficial information appeared in the beginning of the week, now LG's official blog shows a high-resolution picture of the new phone, teasing all readers. The blog doesn't confirm the name or the specifications we've heard before, but we guess they are all correct. It shows little of the 3D interface, revealing a multi-page home screen with one page full of shortcuts to applications and another with links to multimedia files - songs and pictures. Just to remind you, Arena is expected to offer high-resolution 480x800 pixels 3" touchscreen, mobileTV, DivX (and probably XviD) support, 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and aGPS. FCC have already approved a few versions - we guess the original KM900 has the European 3G bands but there is also one with the bands suitable for AT&T's 3G. The official LG blog notes that the new phone will be announced at the MWC 2009, so expect our hands-on from there.

I dont think most people understand that alltel is still going to keep up and running in some part of the US. For me, I live in SD, and Alltel told us that they are not joining verizon. So with that, they must be gettting new phones sometime.

The SD region for Alltel will operate independently of VZW becuase they already have a license there and the DOJ and the FCC would consider VZW owning two licenses in the same area monopolistic competition of the market place. There are other areas where this will be happening too, although i don't know where, but i think phonearena posted an article at one time which areas that was.... but i digress. I would also assume that in the interim Alltel and VZW will sell the same phones, but again, that is just speculation.
