An LG iriver phone has just been unveiled in the pair’s South Korean home turf, combining the cellphone know how of the former, with the super sonics of the latter. Forget Samsung‘s collaborations with Bang & Olufsen: could this be the best music mobile ever?
We don’t blame you if you’ve never heard of iriver: its range of excellent media players rarely make it to our shores, but we’re certainly hoping the fruits of its partnership with LG do. The LG iriver phone, called the LG-LB4400, uses LG hardware and wireless connectivity tech to get you making calls: it packs a 2.8-inch WVGA OLED touchscreen, a three megapixel camera, Dolby Surround Mobile and event DMB Tv support for watching shows on the go, live.

But the LG iriver phone uses iriver’s DAP skills for music playback, with strong format support for all your tunes, including MP3, WMA, WAV, OGGA, AAC and even APE and lossless FLAC for audio purists, as well as a recognisable iriver UI for navigation.
Sadly, there’s absolutely no word on when we might see the LG iriver phone appearing in the West, but if we don’t see anything soon, we’ll be writing a strongly worded letter to our MP, and we suggest that you do the same.
