Two LG Vus coming to AT&T?
The LG Vu, scheduled to go on sale with AT&T sometime this year, appears to be coming to the wireless carrier in two different versions. An official list of the company's TTY-compatible phones points not just to a CU920, the Vu's standard name, but a "CU915," an apparent alternate version. Though both phones are identified as supporting AT&T's 3G network technology, nothing else is known about the 915.
It is rumored that the 915 may be a stripped-down variant of the 920, without support for AT&T's planned mobile TV service using MediaFLO. The service has been delayed, and it will not in any case be available in all regions with 3G. A TV-free Vu could therefore be a means of increasing the distribution of the phone through full compatibility. [via Engadget Mobile]
