Touchpads are no longer revolutionary. But they are still not flawless either. The ones we've managed to test so far have all fallen seriously short of being the best thing since sliced bread. However, our experience with LG KF600 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona revealed a huge step forward for touchpad-navigated devices. You can imagine we were more than eager to make a full review of the handset. Luckily, the pre-release unit we got was good enough for that purpose. So, here we go.
The KF600 was one of the highlights at the LG booth at the MWC and, as we see it, it has enough good reasons for that. There's a great youthful feel about the handset, which can hardly go unnoticed. Of course the new InteractPad interface has its downsides, so you might just want to read a little more before you fork out the cash. This certainly is not everybody's phone.
Clearly, LG KF600 is not inventing the wheel with its InteractPad. We still can't forget the hard time the touchpad of Samsung E950 gave us. However, the KF600 seems to have more odds of achieving market success. The lower touch-sensitive display is now far more responsive and boasts much greater image quality. Sounds like a good start for this little fella.
