LG's Incite Smartphone Gets It Right

You probably haven't heard about this new touch-screen smartphone, LG's Incite. That's a shame, because it's terrific, especially if you get your email through a Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) Windows Exchange Server. In that case, it should be on your shopping short list.

AT&T's (T - Get Report) Incite is LG's first U.S. smartphone. It's a slim, sleek, silver design with a blacked-out screen (which takes up nearly the entire front of the handset). It measures 4.2 by 2.2 by 0.55 inches and weighs 4.23 ounces. It is a quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz), 3G (850, 1900, 2100 MHz, UMTS/HSDPA) world phone. The Incite runs on version 6.1 of the Windows Mobile operating system and has a microSD memory card slot for extra storage.

There's a 3 megapixel camera for stills and video. The rechargeable battery is said to be good for up to 8.7 hours of talk time and up to 21 days of standby. The Incite's battery was easily able to last for two full days of use (heavy use) before needing recharging. That's far better than Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) iPhone 3G, Research In Motion's (RIMM) BlackBerry Storm or T-Mobile's (DT) G-1 Google (GOOG - Get Report) phone which, if you use judicially, might give you a day's worth of juice.

Excited About the LG Incite

Also included is Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g), Bluetooth (2.0), GPS (all tested and work beautifully), Windows Media Player (10), Microsoft Mobile Office with cut/paste functions (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), Xpress Mail (Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, Yahoo! (YHOO) Mail, AOL (TWX), instant messaging (AOL, Yahoo!, Microsoft Windows Live) CV (Cellular Video), XM (XMSR) Satellite Radio, all sorts of games and much, much more.
