AT&T (Ma Bell) and LG Electronics MobileComm (LG Mobile Phones) announced the availability of the new Shine by LG today. The Shine is a sliding form-factor device that features a silver exterior and comes with video, music and camera features. The phone is sold exclusively through AT&T and comes with a 2.2-inch mirror LCD screen.
The phone is packed with some of AT&T’s best features, including AT&T Video Share, Mobile Banking, and AT&T Mobile Music. This phone isn’t just about style and glamour; it provides state-of-the-art mobile device computing and wireless services.
“This is the kind of device that people will stop and ask if they can hold it,” said Carlton Hill, vice president of Product Development for AT&T’s wireless unit. “The Shine by LG will be appealing to anyone who believes that a mobile phone should work well and look great.”
“Metal is back and taking on a whole new look with this season’s must-have mobile phone, the Shine by LG,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, vice president of Product Strategy and Marketing at LG Mobile Phones. “Consumers will be captivated by the Shine’s brushed-metal body and mirror LCD, and they will be excited to find that the phone is more than just a pretty face.”
I’ve never been big on looks. The biggest fashion statement I make is changing my underwear once a week. But the Shine does have a 2.0-megapixel camera with video record and Bluetooth 2.0 capability for music and voice. The handset is available through AT&T retail location or online for $149.00 after a two-year contract-activation agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate. Perhaps this silver bell is just what you need to help ring in a new year.
