As a Windows Mobile phone, it also comes with Microsoft Office Mobile, Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5, and Windows Media Player 10, a first for LG.

The design is quite attractive, as well. It has a 3-inch touch screen with either a full QWERTY keyboard in landscape or a 20-key keyboard in portrait, plus the keys have haptic feedback. You can either use your finger or the included stylus. The Incite also has a microSD card slot with support for up to 16GB of additional storage.

The Incite is available now online and in stores for $199.99 with a new two-year service agreement and mail-in rebate.

HTC FuzeOn Tuesday, the carrier officially took the wraps off the HTC Fuze, which is now on sale for $299.99 with a two-year contract and after a mail-in rebate. The Windows Mobile 6.1 device has many of the same great features as its CDMA cousin, but also offers some design tweaks and AT&T services. But is it worth $300? Are there better options?

Read our full review of the HTC Fuze for AT&T to find out.

Apple, AT&T speed up iPhone 3G buying over Web

Apple has figured out a way to let prospective iPhone 3G buyers get a few of the steps out of the way at home.

The activation process is still not quite as smooth as the one that greeted new owners of the original iPhone, but Apple and AT&T seem to have figured out a way to make things a little easier while keeping the unlockers at bay as much as possible. A visit to an Apple or AT&T store is still required, but some of the preliminary details can now be completed via the Internet.

For instance, you can enter your billing information to generate the credit check required for a new contract, pick a rate plan, and make an appointment to pick up an iPhone 3G. The phone still needs to be activated in the store, which is Apple and AT&T’s way of trying to deter those who wish to unlock the phone and resell it for a profit.

This may not apply to everyone, such as those who have business accounts or other special discounts, but should streamline the process a bit for everyone else. Piper Jaffray thinks Apple will have sold 5 million iPhone 3Gs in the current quarter, and this process could make it a little easier for holiday shoppers toward the end of the year.

Apple and AT&T have figured out a way to shave a few minutes off the iPhone 3G purchasing experience.
