This is close to what I have been waiting for. (The only extra things i want are a bigger display (240x480 or 320x640 2.6" or 2.8" wide screen) and a T9-like smart dialer on the external keypad.
Anyway, when is it coming out? anyone knows for sure?
Is this handset S60 compatible? If yes that may explain the fairly high ratings,otherwise - not much in it :-(
what a wasted oportunity. could have had a decent size screen with high resoution, wi-fi.
but no, they make it look good then put rubbish on it.
You guys, this phone ISN'T a business phone.....its a multimedia phone
i repeat...NOT A BUSINESS PHONE!
give up LG give up ! ,this phone has nothing to do with a decent bussines phone
The thing is,a huge screen needs lots of power to lite up and 'service'. Look at all this fancy Nokia's,Samsungs ans Sonyericsson's - they barely last a day on a charge. I ain't going to browse the web or watch Star Wars on it. It will be OK the check urgently a important email and to give a NO/Yes answer. It will be perfect for me.
Can't really understand why the screen is so small... there is so much room there to increate the screen size. Appart from that i like it!
This phone will be the cheapest s60 by far and will have a 'full qverty' keyboard ! No other 'kiddies' functions. Just right for me. Now I can sms customers without having to use a 8 button keyboard and have the advantage of s60 (lots of programs to chose from - some free)
what i would like to know is that these LG KT610 Iis it a good phone or what? bt from what i se it looks great on the outside i would like to have it
Being an S60 phone, will all my S60 #rd edition programs work on it?
this phone looks cheap and nasty, like an old calculator. i hope they dont over price it because it will never sell! if you click and enlarge the picture you will see what i mean.
Any news on the release date? Hope LG doesn't overprice. I'll have to wait and see if all my symbian apps work properly on both screens.
Guess LG is aiming at Txt & email addicts with this model.
Way to go LG.
I've been waiting for a device like this for years (only thing better would be an updated Nokia E70 sized closer to the 6822). What I need is a Nokia 6120 w/slightly larger screen & QWERTY keyboard to enter calendar/contact info, but don't need the rest of the fancy stuff like the E90. People complaining about that are missing the point: The KT610 is smaller in all three dimenstions, enough to be pocketable unlike the E90, and smaller display, no WiFi and no fancy camera means it'll have good battery life & can be reasonably priced. I have no use for a >$500 mobile device anyway, as it means I'll be too afraid of it getting lost or stolen.
They also did right by having a separate numeric row which doesn't require a modifier key, and the small external display is just right for looking up a contact to call or viewing the next appointment.
What remains to be seen is how smooth the internal/external mode switchover is (I notice the external keypad doesn't have S60 Menu or Edit keys), and whether LG delivers a stable S60 implementation, whether the 3d-party S60 apps will work properly (internal display is landscape only) etc.
I think this has the potential to be an excellent seller.
to makers of all phones wlan is a must now don't even bother making a phone without it..>> idiots
