Today LG unveiled a couple of new touchscreen-enabled phones to reinforce the midrange segment of their portfolio. The LG GD880 Mini is a full-touch handset dubbed as the most compact phone with a 3.2" screen, while the LG GT350 is a hardware QWERTY-equipped device with a distinct youthful appeal. Unfortunately, the two lengthy press releases reveal few technical details about the two phones.
In addition to the 3.2" widescreen touchscreen, the LG GD880 Mini boasts a 5 megapixel camera, 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS. FM radio and a built-in microSD card slot complement the pretty nice upper mid-range package.
LG didn't confirm the resolution of the GD880 Mini display but rumor has it that it will be 854 x 480 pixels.
The LG GD880 Mini will be available in Europe starting in March, followed by other markets. Pricing is yet to be determined but we are guessing we will be getting a better taste of the phone next week in Barcelona.
LG GT350 is a full QWERTY side-slider with a 3" WQVGA touchscreen display. Coming to succeed the popular LG KS360, which sold more than 5 million units worldwide, the GT350 should deliver better messaging experience and social network integration. The interface is optimized for better Facebook and Twitter experience and there are even dedicated shortcuts on the keyboard for accessing them.
Unfortunately, for some reason LG didn't see fit to reveal more of its specifications. We suppose a good part of the reason is the lack of much upgrade compared to the KS360.
The LG GT350 will be available in Europe in April and other markets will follow. The four inbox color options are Aqua Blue, Purple, Light Silver, and Black.
I LUUUUUUUUUVVV this phone! I want it sooo bad!!!! Anyone know where I can get one in America?
This phone is amazing!!! I'm hoping it will come to North America soon, there is one video on youtube (from LG) saying that it also comes in pink, can't wait to see what that looks like!! Anyone know where you can buy one?
Really excited about this phone. The wireless auto sync with your computer and LG servers is an excellent feature for backing up your data, as is having dolby 5.1 surround in a phone!! For more details on the LG mini check out the official LG Blog ...
