LG Decoy - Detachable Bluetooth Headset

The LG Decoy from Verizon Wireless is a sexy slider phone with a 2 MP camera and full-up multimedia and wireless broadband features.

But the really interesting innovation is an integrated wireless Bluetooth headset that clips onto the back of the unit. The headset design is a thin slab that slips into a slot on the back of the phone, though it projects slightly, with the earpiece nesting in a deeper hole. It also charges while docked.

The headset tucks in the ear, and includes a power/call button and volume controls. The phone supports multiple Bluetooth connections, so you can connect to and switch between two devices.

The phone itself has a mirror-like front featuring a 2.2" display and dedicated navigation controls, including a joystick/button. Slide it open for the phone keypad.

The Decoy is a full-up multimedia phone, with speakerphone and voice commands, 2 MP camera for photos and video, music player, VCAST Music and Videos, and microSD slot for up to an additional 8 GB of storage.

It's fully connected, with Verizon's EV-DO Rev. A wireless broadband service, with Mobile email and Web, plus VZ Navigator for maps with directions, and Chaperone to locate a child's phone.

The Decoy is available for $199.99 with a two-year contract.
