Red, Red, LG Vu Wine

Who doesn't like a fine wine with dinner? How about with business? Or on the go? It's totally appropriate when that wine is the new touch screen phone for AT&T.

This red wine is more full-featured than full-bodied. In fact, it's body dimensions of 4.3 x 2.1 x 0.5 inches makes it perfect to carry in pocket or bag. You read that right. This device is only a half-inch thin. But within that half-inch of high density electronic packaging is the latest in communications technology.

It starts with the large high resolution color touchscreen. No stylus needed. You just touch the appropriate icon on the 3 inch display to launch the desired application. That might be the 2.0 Megapixel digital camera that also works as a camcorder. Or it might be the AT&T MediaFLO live TV service that lets you watch live television on the go, where available. Or perhaps you'll want to access the Internet with a full Web browser that works in portrait or landscape orientation, per your selection.

There's a touchscreen QWERTY keyboard for messaging without the bulk of a physical keyboard. There's 120 MB of built-in memory plus microSD slot to add more. There's a full-featured music player, instant messenger, email, and text and picture messaging capability.

Did we mention how sleek and attractive this phone is? It has Bluetooth headset capability, but you'll be so proud to show it off you may not want to use the headset unless you need to.
