May i know what is the firmware for this HP?
Is it any possibility that can install other software such as SKYPE or MSN
Spyros/Cesar.s.c, 29 Mar 2009This is really a very good cellphone. Nice interface, excellent desing. very good job for LG. ... moreit has _4_ times the screen resolution of the omnia i900 - don't have to think about it. no web-site will ever come close on the omnia.
(the only minor flaw is the missing option to install offline-gps-rouing as easy. but i'm wealthy enough to have a real gps-unit in my car .. :-P )
I am afraid that as there is no dedicated speaker, the sound for music player or ring tones will be too soft (like in the Renoir)
This is really a very good cellphone. Nice interface, excellent desing. very good job for LG. But it cant catch Samsung i900 Omnia.
I wish they would post if these devices are UMA. Wifi is useless if these devices are not UMA enabled!
I would really like GSMARENA to review battery life more - how many hours of hard using ,stanbdby and everything and not like it's one the specs sheet cause almost everytime the information there is not true.Battery life is essential for these devices (we saw what happened to the G1-Dream)cause it's like bying a really good and expensive sports car and have to refuel every 30 miles you go....
I like the silver/whitish back of the phone.
1. It wont attract finger prints like the black one will ( look on youtube for the black one and you will se what I mean)
2. It will stand out from the crowd of black phones. There is a sea of black phones out there at the moment, and when you will have the phone to your ear if its black no one will notice at all. The silver one will attract more admiring looks of jealousy for sure.

I wish reviewers would skip all the multimedia stuff and focus on those things you mentioned. Makes you think they have something to hide if they don't concentrate on texting and calling, doesn't i?
Nice phone!! Specs are cool and software wise is fantastic! It's a damn shame it had to look soooo much like the overhyped iphone...
LG should have known that the arena is good enough to have been different in its own way without having to imitate the iphone...
Anyone heard any word about the LG Arena coming to the US. Release dates? etc...
Sean, 26 Mar 2009Wow, this looks really good. In my opinion this would beat the IPhone by far. Hope to see it o... moreWhat phone doesn't?
All Apple products are overhyped, overpriced crap. Love the Apple fanboys who worship Apple like they're gods.
And media usually puts in the "iPhone" name whenever a new Smartphone is coming to get page visits. Sad, sad...

orange & tmobile....
I'd like to make a comment regarding the video clip presented in the review. The 2 primary things that a phone should do is CALL and TEXT/EMAIL. So Pleeeeeease, if ever you will create a video clip presenting the phone, please make sure you show how these things (CALL/TEXT/EMAIL) are done in the featured phone. The Camera, Video and Music department should come after those 2. I am very reluctant to buy touchscreen phones due to text or email input issues using touchscreen. However, having read in other sites that the LG Arena has smooth and responsive touchscreen that makes texting a breeze, I wanted to see an actual video of it doing a text message. I got dissapointed that the video clip presented in the overview doesn't show it.
