Mark Levinson -- heard of him? Probably not unless you're an up-market, audio consumer or Lexus driver with optional Mark Levinson sound system installed. Now he's teamed up with LG on this, "The Rhapsody in Music Phone." Known less hyperbolically as the LG-LB3300. The slider brings an LED-lit touch-wheel to get you disco on, 1GB of built-in memory (expandable with another 4GB), 2-inch LCD, 2 megapixel camera, a terrestrial DMB television tuner for Korea, and Bluetooth A2DP stereo audio with the ability to stream to two listeners in parallel. We hear it makes phone calls too. Of course, there's only so much tweaking an audio wizard can do with compressed MP3 files sent over a compressed Bluetooth audio stream. As such, we'll have to give these a listen before jumping onto the hype-wagon.

Update: Video posted after the break. Warning: freaky begins at 55 seconds.
