The better half of LG's one-two combo of new QWERTY devices for AT&T has launched this week, bringing HSDPA, a 2.8-inch (sadly non-OLED) touchscreen, and 2 megapixel cam for under a hundie on contract. Sure, the even lower-cost Neon might look a little cooler than the Xenon, but if you're looki

We suspect both of these devices are going to sell at a brisk clip for AT&T, but interestingly, it was the much lower-end of the two -- the Neon -- that ended up leaving the bigger impression on us. The phone's solid (but light) to the touch, the keyboard is expansive and easy to use (thanks in

Outside of the smartphone realm, AT&T's really stepping up its game in the feature phone game, too -- so let's take this clockwise from the top left, shall we? First up, we have the brightly-colored Samsung Magnet, targeted squarely at the teen audience looking for serious texting power in a ch

LG's Xenon has just shown up over at Smartphone Nation in an impromptu photoshoot, and it's not looking too bad. There's nothing out of the ordinary here -- slideout QWERTY keyboard, resistive touchscreen, 2 megapixel camera -- you get the idea, right? Seems to be expected on or around the beginn

We were warned that Best Buy has a nasty habit of spelling phone names incorrectly on its internal documents, and sure enough, someone out there isn't too familiar with element 54. Turns out AT&T's QWERTY slider from LG will in fact be the Xenon, not \"Zenon\" as we'd seen on the inventory sheets

Yep, we think we're starting to see what's going on here. AT&T realized somewhere along the line that its two hottest product trends were full touchscreens and texting-centric devices, and now, we're going to start to see combo units come out in full force. We know we're going to be treated to

We got eyes-on with the C903's other side a couple days ago, so it was only fitting that we throw this up to complete the picture. We have to admit, the blurriness threw us briefly because if you squint hard enough, that 5.0 on the backside can sorta come off like an 8. Of course, that's not the ca

That Knick isn't even out yet, and it looks like AT&T might already be gearing up to stuff a competitor right alongside it in the lineup. Boy Genius Report is showing a picture (possibly a rendering -- hard to tell) of a reasonably-spec'd QWERTY slider dumbphone from LG dubbed \"Xenon\" that is c

Well, what have we here? One of those unicorn-like Opus motherboards? According to an image put forth by one Electric Tuner, that's exactly what we have. If you'll recall, we heard back in February that Microsoft may be utilizing the Opus mobos in order to fit the newer 65 / 90-nanometer CPU / GPU

It wasn't that long ago when the Samsung G800 came into our sights and with features like a 5 megapixel camera, 2.4 inch QVGA display, Bluetooth, Xenon flash, expandable memory via microSDHC, and Triband GSM with HSDPA -- who could forget such a device? Well lucky for us, some colleagues had the ch

While it's hardly a secret that the Xbox 360 will be getting a 65nm CPU upgrade sooner or later, China's Commercial Times (not always the most reliable source) is now reporting that the console's Xenos GPU will also be switching over to the cooler, lower-power chips, supposedly sometime this fall.

While places like Australia and Raleigh might be flooding certain areas (or in the Aussie's case, the whole continent) with more energy-efficient light, the US Army is looking to counteract those uber-green intentions by busting out a 7.5-million candlepower strobe floodlight system to be used as a
