It looks like AT&T is at it again with the messaging phones, as PhoneArena has spotted new photos of the LG Neon with a bold AT&T logo at the top.
The slim slider looks great--it appears that it'll have a 2.4-inch touch-screen display, a full QWERTY keyboard, and maybe even a 2-megapixel camera, plus Bluetooth. We're even liking the striking green and white color scheme here. Availability and pricing are still unknown, of course, but we'll keep you posted.
We told you about the LG CF360 yesterday and how its launch was imminent. Well, it just launched, and, indeed, it has all the features we mentioned and even more. These include but are not limited to a 1.3-megapixel camera, access to AT&T Mobile Music, AT&T Navigator, AT&T Video Share and Cellular Video, Bluetooth. It's available now for $29.99 after a two-year agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate.
Features include a 1.3-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, and AT&T Navigator support. No word on pricing, but we think it'll be available shortly.

Nokia, of course, was the top dog. Preliminary numbers show that the Finnish giant sold 470 million handsets in 2008, putting it far ahead of Samsung, which claimed the number two spot with 200 million handset sold.

Three-dimensional TV is coming to a living room near you. But will the technology spur a consumer spending spree like digital and high-definition TV did before it? Or will 3D end up being the next big flop?

The LG VX8360, if you recall, is a mid-tier flip phone with EV-DO, a 1.3-megapixel camera, external music player controls, stereo Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, and of course access to Verizon's V Cast services.
