AT&T Nabbing the QWERTY-Equipped LG Xenon


You may already be familiar with the LG Rumor and how it comes equipped with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The LG Xenon shares some similarities to that handset, except it seems to lack a standard numeric keypad.

Based on the form factor, I’m led to believe that the 2.8-inch QVGA display is a touchscreen, but the leaked specs make no mention of touchscreen functionality. Without a proper touchscreen, I’d imagine that the LG Xenon would be very frustrating to use in its closed position. Other niceties, which pit it almost against the iPhone, include an accelerometer, UMTS/HSDPA, 3 megapixel camera, proximity sensor, aGPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, and microSD expansion.

Sounds pretty solid. The expectation is that the LG Xenon will hit the shelves of AT&T by Christmas. No word on pricing.
