LG LX160 at Sprint

Sprint has slipped out the LG LX160 clamshell phone as a new entry offering for its network. Built to provide just enough extra features without affecting the price, the LX160 makes Bluetooth its most advanced feature and supports hands-free calling as well as tethering to a PC as a makeshift modem. The handset likewise makes better use of its legacy 1XRTT link than some starter handsets by serving up e-mail, instant messaging, and web browsing. LG omits a camera but allows the phone to receive picture messages.

The LX160 works as a speakerphone and taps into Sprint's mobile backup service to save contacts online in case the phone is broken, lost or stolen. Sprint emphasizes the low cost and says that while the phone sells without a contract for $170, any eligible two-year plan activates the handset for free.
