AT&T going elemental with LG Neon

Apparently, 2009 is the year of the Periodic Table, at least in terms of mobile device names.  First, we caught wind of HTC’s upcoming Rhodium, and now comes word that AT&T will be offering the LG Neon.

Originally known as the LG KS360 (or at least it appears to be identical), the newly coined Neon features a 2.4″ touch screen (for on-screen dialing purposes only), a full side-sliding QWERTY key pad, quad-band GSM, Bluetooth, MP3 player, Instant Messaging, 2MP camera, and a high capacity microSD slot.

No word on whether this text-centric middle-to-lower tier mobile will land with 3G or any other upgrades, when it will drop, or pricing info.
