LG CU500 with quad-band GSM/EDGE and HSDPA

The LG CU500 was also approved by FCC a couple of days ago. It is a quad-band GSM/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900) and tri-band UMTS (WCDMA) (850/1900/2100), which would turn it into global “world” 3G phone. According to some rumors though, the supported UMTS bands are only the two US ones (850 and 1900) and support for Cingular's HSDPA high speed data network up to 1.8Mbps.

The swiveling camera eliminates the need of a secondary one for video calling, which is a main feature of all 3G-capable phones and the internal display is a 2.0" QCIF unit. The branding on the phone clearly shows that it is targeted for Cingular, and we expect it to launch soon.
