AT&T and LG have announced the LG GR500 Xenon touchscreen slider phone, a device that comes equipped with quad-band GSM/EDGE and 3G HSDPA data connectivity. Xenon users will be able to send messages and email, browse the web, and use the phone's integrated multimedia features over a fast data connection using AT&T's 3G network.

The LG GR500 Xenon features a full-QWERTY keyboard for quick and easy text messaging, and it should also come in handy when using the phone for web browsing. It includes a 2-megapixel camera, and works with a suite of AT&T applications that include AT&T Navigator, Napster Mobile, eMusic Mobile. The Xenon also has support for Bluetooth, GPS, and features a microSD card slot for expanded memory.

The LG GR500 Xenon will be available on April 8 in black, blue, and red for $99.99 with a 2-year contract.

I've had the phone for 3 weeks now I'm still trying to figure things out. QWERTY keyboard awsome, touchscreen is a little over touchy. All things considered 9.5 out of 10.

Extremely dissatisfied with this phone. The screen lock is too quick. I cannot hold a good signal. It gets hot easily. You have to chill it down before it will pick up a signal after it looses the signal.

madi @ 5:40:26PM EST on Monday December 13, 2010

mine randomly turns off when i slide it closed. was it recalled?!?!?!?!

Truth @ 1:36:03AM EST on Wednesday December 22, 2010

This is a good phone. The problem is that it holds more data than it can handle. When it is overloaded it automatically turns off - also, the slider isn't very convenient. GPS sucks. I think they should recall these phones or make a newer and better model.

Bear @ 9:05:46AM EST on Sunday January 30, 2011
