I don't think it's a copy cat. Look at all the other phones out there, they all look alike, like flip phones. People need to stop being so simple minded. I think it's a great looking phone. With simple features that don't blow a whole in your wallet. Good job, LG.
The keys on the top looks like the ones on the one on a Sony Ericsson Walkman phone.
same shape not always makes something meant to be a copycat,, blackberry has made a new prototype that really impacts another manufacturers to create their own,,, since there are bunches of manufacturers that have adopted the same design, there would be more variation, and it's not impossible for them to create another innovation based on this prototype,,, however, blackberry doesn't have any mid-low-end phone,,, sorry for my bad english, i'm not a native,,
bloodyyyyyyyyy, 08 Jul 2009looks like blackbery :)actually there are a lot of phones that look like this, its kinda a new age phone design
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2009wow cool design i like it & i will buy if this phone use Symbianno it uses linux.
Guys it's not meant to be the latest greatest thing since sliced bread. It's a cheap honest phone that appeals to teens and is affordable for them. What other phone has qwerty pad in this form factor for so little?
The phone takes several design cues from the Motorolas.
With no Wi-Fi, the phone is utterly forgettable.
gide, 08 Jul 2009wew.. such a design! look a like SE buttons! bad bad design...:(really bad. blackberry copy cat too. cant they like make a different one? omg
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2009wow LG is great!ugly springs to mind, looks plastic
I have no problem with online services and communities in general; however, having such communities hard-coded into my phone is just sick! That should be something I can either download or at least permanently remove from my device but it most cases it is just integrated in everything: contacts, pictures, calendar ... nonsense!
I do not need that! I can access FaceBook directly through my phone's webbrowser, so, who would buy it because of that?
