It’s brutal and immoral in this Bluetooth age to keep gadgets tied to their owners with wires – luckily for this LG music phone, it was born with the crucial gene needed for a wireless life known as A2DP.
This means the slim 3G U890 can stream tunes from its 3Player to any compatible Bluetooth headphones, like Jabra’s BT620s, which you’ll need to buy separately.
Its music phone CV is further bolstered by external play and pause buttons, along with support for MP3 and – unprotected, of course – AAC files.
What else has it got to lure you away from a similarly A2DP-equipped Motorola V3x? Well, the screen size has been upped from its U880 predecessor to 2.2in, and there’s a 1.3MP camera for snapping duty too.
It’s also got the classic trump card of the wannabe fashion phone – a range of different colour trims, including pink and blue.
So, not a huge arsenal to blow away the likes of a Samsung i300 or Sony Eric W950i, but a decent option if you fancy dabbling in the growing 3G video menu, including 24-hour news bulletins from ITN (story here).
The U890 is available now exclusively from 3 – keep an eye on Three’s site, where it’s expected to appear this week, for contract pricing info.
