Essentially an upgrade (or complete redo) of the LG Vu, the LG Vu Plus changes things with a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard and support for AT&T's FLO TV mobile service. Mobile TV access starts at $9.99 per month, but new subscribers will be lucky enough to pick up a free trial for a week.
Another $9.99 monthly subscription service supported on the LG Vu Plus is AT&T Navigator, which churns out turn-by-turn voice and on-screen driving directions, plus real-time traffic monitoring. New subscribers also get a crack at a free trial with this program, and this one will last for 30 days.
Naturally, the LG Vu Plus connects to AT&T's 3G network, and it retains 7.2Mbps HSDPA support. Some of the other nifty specs include the 3-inch capacitive touchscreen display, a 3-megapixel AF camera/camcorder, Bluetooth v2.0 and a microSD slot.
The LG Vu Plus will be available starting on June 6 for $149.99 after a mail-in rebate and the signing of a two-year contract.
