The Vu Plus isn't the first phone capable of displaying content from Flo TV, but it's one of the first to call it a primary function.  The Vu Plus is built around consumption of mobile television.

For $10 a month, Vu Plus users will be able to get AT&T Mobile TV, which gives them full access to live and time-shifted television shows.  Pick up one of these phones and you'll be able to watch the FIFA World Cup, Fox News or Spongebob Squarepants no matter where you are.

It's also got the usual phone features including GPS navigation, social networking and a full mobile web browser.  It's got a full QWERTY keyboard and a 240 by 400 screen resolution.

The LG Vu is also compatible with AT&T's 3G speed boost coming later this year.  Once it hits, you'll be able to grab content at speeds up to 7.2 Mbps.  By way of comparison, Netflix HD streaming requires about 5m Mbps.
