I think this Phone will have great camera with good sound quality!
So, a Market Leader from LG?? I don't think so ...
There are too many Symbian Fans, while it's a feature phone .. that's all the visible dis-advantages!
this touch screen phone slapped i8510 & c905
"Touch"screen not keypad phone
1. is this device as slow as viewty? (if you use more than 200mb of your memory card, Viewty becomes unuseable)
2. does it have screen rotating sensor? (Viewty hadn't)
3. has the music player equalizer? (Viewty hadn't)
4. Is it optimized to post on forum boards? (in the Viewty, if you are quoting a large amount of text, the phone shuts down)
and the main question:
Will the phone supported further by LG?
LG Viewty has no software upgrade and this model is abandoned to die without any bug fixes (The bugs were hundreds, believe me!)
[deleted post]How could you say those such ridiculous things... Sony had always been copied by other brands including nokia.... Without sony, your copycat would not be bragging about their fm transmitter and xenon flash. And many other more. Wait for a few months, if sony releases again an extraordinary phone, everyone will copy it again.....
Dani , 04 Sep 2008its such sad news about SE splitting:(I dont care if there wont be SE phones in the future because Sony will continue to produce phones without Ericsson
there seems to be no lens cover and the size of the lens appears to be smaller than the viewty's... if this is the case then it's complete no no for me...
yes well. this is a real iphone. beater. any hpone with 2 megapixel camera isnt great. so unless decide to make I-phone with 5 or more megapixels. I-phone is now dead. when this comes out. Trouble is there so many iphone clones all are better than iphone.
so steve jobs get updating the iphone. or face extinction.
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2008how is this copying the i phone when its the next 1 up from the viewty which was out well befo... more1. It neither looks like Viewty or prada, but it pretty much same look like Omnia.
2. Both Omnia and this model have the same minimalistic design as iPhone.
3. @geo dude, Have a look at Nokia tube. That has the same look.
4.@matt at LBM, true everyone is cashing on the touchscreen craz..that includes Nokia too. They are lagging behind to develop one though. They are always late to follow the market trend when they are not the one to set it. Nokia took years to come up with thinner phones. May be they take time so that no one could say 'hey look now nokia is copying'.
matt at LBM, 04 Sep 2008Its all "i-phone i-phone i-phone at the mo. All brands trying to cash in on the "touch screen ... moreErm. Not really. Nokia's going to come up with touch screen phone soon. Just that they know there will be nokia supporters even if they don't make touch-screen phones.
i just hope that the O/S is better than the viewty, it was so slow and very plain, i hope you can customise this fone more, like themes and tones (maybe even flash menus) sony are the kings with theming and customising
i hope this LG 8MPX will have A ISO 1600 on image and video and beter quality of image,and video on VGA with real 30F/S,Xenon flash and optical zoom at least 3X ,battery 1500mA SDHC micro SD 8GB,dual CPU 332 or higher and then will be perfect cameraphone/hendset
path, 04 Sep 2008which os is this sweet looking baby runing on?this phone is not a smartphone. it has no os.
JokO, 04 Sep 2008In de future, only brands with their expertice in cmera product will exist in cellphone busine... moreyou are so knowledgeable. you predicted SE to exist in the camera phone business. well, youre wrong because sony and ericsson are splitting. there will be no more SE in the future.
In de future, only brands with their expertice in cmera product will exist in cellphone business, like SE, SAMSUNG AND LG..the rest will just follower, like nokia.
