AT&T adds LG video calling phone to lineup

LG CU500v at ATT

AT&T stepped further into the world of video calls today with the launch of the LG CU500v. Similar at first glance to the original phone with HSDPA for 3G wireless, the upgrade brings support for the American carrier's first attempt at live video calls, dubbed Video Share. The feature allows the 1.3-megapixel camera to deliver one-way live video that can alternate from user to user during a call. As before, the camera can also swivel for photography or recording video of the outside world.

Features are otherwise much in keeping with LG's other American phones and extend to a microSD slot for MP3 and video storage, external music controls, and stereo Bluetooth. It sells now through AT&T as one of the carrier's least expensive 3G phones, costing $180 without a commitment or as little as $30 when joined with a two-year term.
