Cell phone review: LG VX7000

As published on CNET.com:
"LG has a hit in the making with its new VX7000, the company's first camera phone with video-recording and playback functionality. Featuring a rotating lens, a flash, and beautiful internal and external screens, the VX7000 will be a hit with camera-phone aficionados. However, the phone's weak e-mail capabilities and lack of Bluetooth or IR support will frustrate business users."

Cell phone review: Nokia 6230

As published on CNET.com:
"Nokia's candy bar-style 6230 isn't pretty or particularly well designed, but it's stuffed to the gills with useful features. Boasting an integrated camera and video recorder, an MP3 player, an FM tuner, Bluetooth and IR support, and an expandable memory slot, there's not much this plain-Jane phone can't do. Hard-core road warriors who can put up with the handset's so-so looks and flawed keypad should give the 6230 a serious look. With a $300 price tag, the phone gives you what you pay for, but once a carrier picks up this mobile, it might be offered at a discount."

Cell phone review: LG L1200

As published on CNET.com:
"LG takes one step forward but two steps back with the L1200, its first GSM mobile with a built-in camera. The new Cingular handset looks sharp and takes above-average photos, but mobile professionals will bemoan the L1200's lack of a speakerphone and its poor standby battery life, while casual conversationalists will be disappointed by its skimpy customization options."
