Vu (LG)
Vu (LG)
Price: $200 (with 2-year contract and mail-in rebate)

The Vu looks and acts a lot like the iPhone: It's got a touchscreen, music player, 2-megapixel camera and runs on the same high-speed AT&T network. One big difference: the Vu offers AT&T's new live mobile TV service, which streams shows from ESPN, Comedy Central and more for $15 to $30 a month. At three inches, the Vu's screen is smaller than the iPhone's 3.5-inch display, which could make watching shows - and typing e-mails - cumbersome.
