LG Xenon and Neon for ATT
Rounding out AT&T's phone launches for CTIA are a pair of expected LG touchscreen devices. The Xenon is LG's take on a mainstream touch device with a full QWERTY slider and gets a 2.8-inch, 240x480 LCD for most input in addition to its keyboard. It stands above some mid-range phones with a 2-megapixel camera, 3G over HSPA and assisted GPS defining the rest of its feature set. AT&T delivers the Xenon on the 8th for $100 after linking it to a 2-year plan.
Less demanding users will get access to the Neon. Already launched on Rogers in Canada, the phone mixes a smaller 2.4-inch touchscreen with QWERTY input. While it keeps the 2-megapixel camera, it sacrifices 3G to lower the price. AT&T isn't specific on its release and says only that the phone will have a low price and launch sometime in the next few weeks.
