Cingular launches new LG GSM/GPRS mobile phones - no Bluetooth
Posted on 8-Nov-2003 10:24 | Tags Filed under: News

Cingular Wireless and LG Mobile Phones announced that Cingular is the first carrier in the U.S. to offer LG’s new line of handsets for the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM). LG Mobile Phones and Cingular are also introducing LG’s first two GSM handsets, the G4010 and G4050.

“LG’s goal is to provide consumers with fashionable phones that give them the functions and services that they want,” said Jae Hoon Bae, president of LG Mobile Phones. “Introducing a whole new group of feature-rich GSM handsets designed specifically for Cingular Wireless to compliment their new services gives customers the opportunity to experience these impressive services in great style.”

These are not top of the line mobile phones, but offer some good functionality combination. It's a shame Bluetooth is not included:

Specs for G4050:
  • GPRS Class 10 High-Speed Data Communications
  • Dimensions: 3.39” (H) x 1.73” (W) x 1.02” (D)
  • Weight: 3.21 oz.
