Mark Levinson is famous in the up-market for it’s audio systems and Lexux with sound system installed. Now he unites with LG on this, “The Rhapsody in Music Phone.”  LG-LB3300, slider with LED-lit touch-wheel for some lights on, 1GB of built-in memory (expandable with 4GB), 2-inch LCD, 2 megapixel camera, a DMB television tuner for Korea, and Bluetooth A2DP stereo audio with the ability to stream to two listeners in parallel.

They say, it also can make calls.

Here comes another digital audio player called UP3 by LG. The all metal UP3 comes in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB of storage; an FM radio; MP3, WMA, and OGG audio and ASF video support; tiny OLED display supporting 65,000 colors.

4GB will cost you just about $92. And it’s called UP3 for you not to forget using it also as a flash drive. Witty move, indeed, but no word on availability or pricing.

lg.jpgLG decided to show us the other side. The LG KS20 smartphone (sans Prada) has many features like 128MB memory, a 2.8″ 262k color touchscreen with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA, a 2 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, a microSD card slot, and an integrated FM tuner. Wow. I wish, half pf these romors would be true.

The LG MSB-100 is a cool Bluetooth speaker. Looks pretty cool with its black finish and speakers that are highlighted in white. The speaker also is a speakerphone at conferences. This bears witness to its amazing (stereo) sound output. The MSB-100 is promises us good compatibility with the scores of LG (and other) handsets that offer stereo Bluetooth. and for sure it’s portability.

The LG MSB-100 Stereo Bluetooth Speaker should be available by May for $120.

lg2.jpgLG showed two clamshells, who operate over CDMA. The LG VX-8700 is with a 2 megapixel shooter and EV-DO radio connectivity. Also, there is Bluetooth and microSD. The external display blends into something called a ‘brushed aluminum façade’. Next on is the LG LX-570. Glossy black music phone. Yeah. It comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera, FM tuner, EV-DO and Bluetooth and a tune-controlling D-pad. To make music toggling easy, this one is touch-sensitive. There’s also a micro-SD slot for extra storage.

There is no news on the release date of price of the LG VX-8700 and the LG LX-570 for now.

lg_chocolate.jpgAnd we have the LG Chocolate Flip AX8600s to win the heart of the mellower ones. These come in three light colors that are more soothing and bright rather than sleek and steely. They come in blue, green, and beige. We can also find the similar electrostatic keys on the outside to control playback. But I guess it’s ok as the LG Chocolate Flip AX8600 costs just $50.

Pretty affordable for everyone and yet it looks dashing enough.

lg1.jpgThis Chocolate system looks pretty neat. The sleek black exterior gives it an exquisite touch. A major feature of this system is that it can play back DivX over its HDMI or component connection. The LG Media Center comes in with powerful 75W speakers and a 150W subwoofer. It provides with USB connectivity so that you can backup and store stuff on its 80GB hard drive. However, Ethernet connectivity (to go with the USB) would be more welcome.

The LG J10HD Chocolate Media Center costs a £329 (~$636). And it will be available only in Europe, as of now. Quite overpriced, but a good fanservice, I should say.

design16.jpgAt LG’s Digital Design Center in Seoul two versions of the Shine phone were shown. The first one is a special gold edition, which will initially ship for CDMA networks in Korea. Hopefully the GSM version should hit the shelves too. The Shine Folder (the second one) is a clamshell.

Asus shown the brilliant Aura phone concept which is slimmer than the slimmest and the slickest one around. The phone has a frontal adorned by a fantastic 3.9 inch LCD screen that surfaces the entire phone. A touchscreen, yes!

That’s not all; the 97×49×6mm frame also accommodates a 2 megapixel shooter, a QWERTY keyboard that is ridiculously slender and a microSD card slot. as far as network and connectivity specs are concerned, there’s a lot to smile about as it provides support for GSM, HSPDA, UMTS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The second really nice try after the LG Prada KE850 in challenging the iPhone.
