>> I'm Nicole Lee, a Senior Associate Editor for CNET.com, and this is a first look at the Lg Sentio for T-Mobile. The Lg Sentio is LG's first phone for T-Mobile USA, and as you can see here it's a pretty simple touch screen multi-media feature phone. On the front is a nice 3-inch colorful display. You can customize the home screen through a variety of widgets. At the bottom of the home screen to find shortcuts to the phone dialer, the contacts list, the browser as well as the main menu. The main menu is divided into 4 parts, the phone part, the media section, the organizer section as well as the settings section. On the back here is a 3-megapixel camera lens. The Lg Sentio also has an accelerometer so you can tilt the phone sideways to activate the virtual QWERTY keyboard. Features of the Sentio include the aforementioned 3-megapixal camera and camcorder, GPS Telinar support, stereo Bluetooth, a full HTML Web browser, as well as a YouTube app and a social bus app that gives you access to Facebook and Twitter. The Lg Sentio is available for $70 and a new 2-year service agreement from T-Mobile. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the first look at the Lg Sentio.

LG Sentio - blue (T-Mobile) Review
The good: The LG Sentio is a slim, lightweight phone that has a 3.0-megapixel camera, an HTML Web browser, support for 7.2Mbps 3G speeds, and a music player.
The bad: The LG Sentio's touch screen isn't as responsive as we would like, and its text input area feels rather small.
The bottom line: While we have a few issues with its touch screen, the LG Sentio is still a solid midrange multimedia phone for T-Mobile customers.
