LG INCITE Windows Mobile 6.1 device now available from AT&T

Summary: Wow, I just can't keep up with AT&T's high end mobile phone releases. Today, AT&T and LG announced the availability today of the LG INCITE Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional device. This is the first entry into Windows Mobile in the U.S. by LG and it looks like a direct competitor to the outstanding Samsung OMNIA that is a major iPhone challenger. I just picked up the HTC Fuze on Saturday and after looking at the specs on this device think the Fuze is still better for my needs.

LG INCITE Windows Mobile 6.1 device now available from AT&TWow, I just can't keep up with AT&T's high end mobile phone releases. Today, AT&T and LG announced the availability today of the LG INCITE Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional device. This is the first entry into Windows Mobile in the U.S. by LG and it looks like a direct competitor to the outstanding Samsung OMNIA that is a major iPhone challenger. I just picked up the HTC Fuze on Saturday and after looking at the specs on this device think the Fuze is still better for my needs.

The LG INCITE has some pretty good specifications, including Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, 3 inch 240x400 WQVGA display, 3 megapixel camera, UMTS/HSDPA support, 256MB ROM/128MB RAM, integrated GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, and 1300 mAh battery. I don't think the display can compare with the new VGA displays on the HTC Fuze and BlackBerry Bold.

I am interested in seeing the device though because I want to see what LG may have added themselves to the Windows Mobile OS since often manufacturers add tools and functionality that adds to the experience. This is a full screen only device with no keypad or keyboard (similar to the iPhone). It is availble for US$199.99 after a 2-year contract and US$100 mail-in rebate. The full no-commitment price is US$499.99.

    Epix on AT&T is a great smartphone. I have installed the Spb Mobile Shell on it and it still doesn't slow down. very very good device.

    Where's the TouchFlo3D?:) If you like the Fuze check out Fuzemobility.com since they have really gone into detail on how to tweak just about every part of the Fuze.
    As for the Incite- I'd wait for the Touch HD to make its way to America...

  • The Fuze doesn't have a haptic touchscreen.

    One thing that seperates the Incite from the rest is the haptic touchscreen. You can feel what you touch.
