MWC 2008: LG Overview

By 02:00 Sun, 08 Aug 2021 Comments


LG managed to surprise us with almost a dozen of brand recent handsets. While not all are high-discontinue devices, each one has its own appeal, and we were eager to scour the LG booth for some quality time spent with them.

But before we proceed with the handsets, a small timeout is due with an enigmatic timepiece by LG. They presented a behind-the-glass teaser of their soon-to-be LG Watch phone. The teaser gadacquire is locked up and off limits to us, but at least we snatched a few shots of it. For what we’ve seen (no touch), it’s got a Shine-like navigation scroller, media player, touch classy screen (we guess) and, well, analog-style clock. But enough clever talk, check out those shots.

Next we continued our booth tour with the spanking novelty LG KF700 or otherwise known as LG Virgo - a multimedia slider, which stands out with its multiple control-and-navigation methods. The handset puts together a 3" touchclassy screen display, slide-out standard keypad and the novel Shortslit Dial at the back, which somehow resembles the LG Viewty's Jog in its functionality.

LG KF700 sports a full featured Web browser integrating Google Search, Blogs, Gmail, Maps and Youtube. HSDPA enhances web browsing and makes video calls possible. Other goodies include an MP3 player, MPEG4 video player, 3 megapixel capturing camera with autofocus and image stabilizer, Bluetooth and microSD memory expansion.

The tri-band slider offers a 3" 262K-color touchclassy screen display with a resolution of 240 x 480 pixels.

Here's a short video walkthrough of the LG KF700.

The thing we liked the best about it is that in terms of user interface speed and responsiveness it's way beyond what LG Viewty can offer. Otherwise the user interface is the same as the Viewty's but improved in graphically. The Home classy screen can now accomodate several widgets - beside Calendar and World clock, there is also a Notes application.
