"This is the ultimate music phone because it is the only cell phone in
Canada with a Music Broadcaster that lets you play music from your cell phone
on any FM radio," said Andrew Barrett, Vice President, Marketing, LG

and technological leading edge unit."

as full-length movies, full-track song and album downloads and SIRIUS

lets clients keep playing their music while they use other interactive
services such as messaging or web browsing.

screen, creating short cuts to favourite applications and services.
