Sprint and LG Electronics launched the new MUZIQ, a multimedia device including over-the-air song downloads, a 4GB microSD memory card slot and a built-in FM transmitter enabling consumers to listen to their music libraries wirelessly through any FM radio within 10 feet. The successor to the FUSIC handset debuted by LG last year, MUSIQ also includes dedicated music controls, A2DP Bluetooth stereo audio and a 1.3 megapixel camera. In addition, MUZIQ arrives complete with the Sprint Music Manager service, which promises users the ability to sideload music from a PC to the handset via USB cable--while the device includes a 64MB MicroSD memory card, it is capable of managing 4GB of memory, or roughly 4,000 songs. MUZIQ by LG measures 3.80" x 1.94" x 0.61" and weighs 3.14 ounces, and is priced at $99 with a two-year service agreement.
