LG showed off its V9000 this week at the 3GSM conference. With this phone, LG looks poised to battle Samsung s SGH-P900 for high-end cellphone supremacy. Its biggest draw is that it receives wireless TV signals (using the DMB-T transmission system) on its 256K color display. Additionally, the V9000 sports a 1.3 Megapixel camera with 30 MB of onboard memory. Battery life looks to be impressive, too, lasting three hours while playing TV. Though LG did not release information regarding price, it is expected to launch the V9000 in Italy and Germany sometime in the first half of 2006.
