this is an international phone not made for use in the USA and LG USA will not warranty it.
I just would like to know if someone knows when this phone is going to be out in USA or any other countries.
you are not right, these are the minimum to be the best phone in 2010, Arena Max should be better than Omnia HD at least.
..pls include also the barometer, atmospheric pressure sensor, altimeter on board...
Check this out! It's one of the best reviews ever made!
I really has all the details about the most "awesome" device of all times!
Don't forget to check the description link for even more details video aswell!
i'd love it if lg made an android smartphone... Without its pricebeing out of reach..
its not a smart phone
when will LG learn, feature touch phones where, are and always will be useless junk
i don know why people ever cared about getting a Touch Wiz once they've used one
the 5800 with its simple as hell OS feels better than Touch Wiz or the overated Arena UI
but thats just my opinion with these kinda phones, please feel free to bash the as you like cause having an opinion is illegal these days

Fingerprint reader? Seriously?
Bes... moreof course the fingerprint reader and numbr two Xenon flash was a joke. but LG has big plans with AMOLED (and digiTV http://www.i4u.com/article14971.html), and it's time to change the video recording resolution to 720p (LG Louvre), you can remember the Arena was the first with 480p, the Viewty was only with VGA rec.
I'm sure the TV receiver won't be in it, next time maybe (LTE, WiFi/n, USB 3.0 as well). becouse 2012 is comming, and than in Europe the analog TV is will be closed, so the focus will be on the digiTV.
and 4.0'' AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 5x optical zoom with Kodak len, slide 5rows qwerty keyboard, TV antenna, HDMI,2000 mah battery, wire-less charge, dual-OS with Windows and Android, 32gb integrated memory, 16gb memory stick in retail box, 1ghz Snapdragon CPU, 200 preinstalled software
It costs 2000 USD

Besides you can be sure the device won't have HD video and HdMI, it's nto a camera phone, lg reserve those things for their viewty devices and the like, and they don't have them yet.
Arena max surely won't have it as HD generates loads of hype...
The tv receiver doesn't work everywhere, and AMOLED has never been used by Lg before and I doubt whether it will be used now.
the processor could be a good point though.
better processor and better battery please! love my lg arena...and my gsm arena (suck-up!!)

The latest Viewty was similar to Arena with a few upgrades.
Now launching another phone as Arena only means they wants to encash on the brand.
It'll probably be a phone with a larger screen. I don't think LG will have a well known OS (like WinMo or Android) on board because they already have launched their App store, they're just bringing out more product to support the app store and vice versa.
Whilst many manufacturers are positioning themselves in the market for devices running on smartphone operating systems and the supporting application stores that will service them there are many consumers who want simply an effective feature rich device that might run on a proprietary operating system but which will have the advantage of stability such as LG's recent offerings and Samsung's Jet. LG may well by not ignoring this important mid range segment of the market become the market leader for feature devices.
