LG has tried just about every angle
we -- and apparently they
-- can think of with its enormously popular shine and seem to now be stretching as they get into faux
wood grain. LG has tossed in a helping of DMB TV, a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and of course a retractable antenna to focus all that mobile TV fun. While we dig the LG Shine, we miss the original sliding form factor
and even though the wood isn't real -- and seriously, since when is a wooden handset cool? -- we think this new aesthetic is a bit scary, so please LG, even gem-encrusted pink
is a better direction. Pricing seems set at about $500, but don't expect to see this on these shores for a long time to come, if ever.
