LG LX550 EV-DO/MP3 clamshell to launch in May?

Evan Blass

From the same blurry piece of paper that brought us such tantalizing tidbits as the possible features and release date of the Treo 700p, comes another, admittedly less exciting, EV-DO handset from LG that is purported to be available on the same day as the Treo. The LG LX550 is a "mid-tier clam device focusing on advanced EVDO technologies including an MP3 player and an FM transmitter" (thanks Sprint, we learned a whole lot of new and puzzling info in that blurb) that also sports Bluetooth with A2DP, a 1.3 megapixel camera, and the always-popular changeable faceplate. Like the 700p, this will supposedly be released on May 28th -- price also TBD -- and according to Sprint, is targeted towards "trendsetting male[s] and female[s] between the ages of 18-35 who want a technologically advanced clam phone..." Although we can't really see carrying around a non-smartphone, because we're young, hip, and love clams, we may be unable to resist this model's powerful marketing.
