Dolby-powered LG GM200 probably sounds better than it looks

Chris Ziegler

Dolby's been making a strong push into the mobile market in the past couple years, and the company's licensing tie-up with LG is starting to pay dividends in the form of this little block of plastic, GSM, and grit, the GM200. The black candybar's claim to fame is that you can use the FM radio without headphones plugged in -- most handsets with radios require the factory headset as an external antenna -- and you've got a supposedly-decent set of stereo speakers to blast the tunes. Similar to Motorola's CrystalTalk, the GM200 will automatically regulate earpiece volume depending on ambient noise, a trick feature that LG probably attributes to its work with Dolby. Otherwise, you've got a 2 megapixel cam, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, EDGE, and the envy of Dolby fanboys everywhere. Oh, what, don't look around you, you know who you are.
