LG Vu to Get MediaFLO: Report

AT&T is relaunching the LG Vu, a full-featured handset that emphasizes mobile media, in a new wine color, Engadget Mobile reports. That’s a typical ploy to rejuvenate interest in a handset after it’s been on the market several months.

What’s interesting here is that in addition to the new color, the new model (920 vs. 915) will also sport MediaFLO this time around, meaning that AT&T subscribers will be able to pony up for broadcast-quality mobile TV using the Vu. The refreshed handset will also include a number of bug fixes, according to the report.

No word yet on a release date, though the price is expected to ring in at around $100 with a two-year contract. (MediaFLO will cost extra each month.)
