The LG Incite, which just debuted on AT&T, has the distinction of being the first smartphone from LG released by a major U.S. wireless carrier. It runs the latest version of Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, and includes a wQVGA touchscreen, 3G, and Wi-Fi.
One of the features that sets it apart from the pack is its 3-inch, 240-by-400-pixel touchscreen, which puts it between QVGA and VGA displays. So far, the only other device with this screen resolution is the Samsung Omnia.
The Incite doesn’t have a physical keyboard or numberpad, but it does offer on-screen versions of both. These provide vibration feedback when touched.
It has both domestic and international calling and 3G capabilities, as well as built-in Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) and Bluetooth 2.0.
