LG announces 3 new phones in time for MWC

leave a comment »

In time for the Mobile World Congress, LG has announced 3 new phones. Sure, there will be more announcements from LG when MWC begins, but these are updates or addition to existing phones for the masses.

GD880 Mini is the “smalllest and slimmest” 3.2-inches touchscreen phone with 7.2HSPDA, WiFi, A-GPS, a nd 5Mpxl camera stuffed into the small package. It also makes social networking a breeze with Social Network Connect and Social Network Feed which are tied to the Social Address Book.

The GT350 replaces the KS360 aka Neon. This little puppy comes with QWERTY slide-out keyboard.

The GD880 Mini will be available in Europe next month (to be followed by other markets) while the GT350 will be available in April.

And then there is the Cookie Plus. This device is clearly targeted at tweens and early teens with fun colors and “Cartoon-like UI” with 18 themes. It comes with 3Mpxl camera, FM tuner, social media support and several other widgets.

leave a comment »

Rumors had recently surfaced that LG was working on a new touchscreen smartphone with widescreen cinema aspect. Today, a video has surfaced lending legitimacy to the rumors and making us drool. The phone, named LG Chocolate will be the 4 in its Black Label series giving it the number BL40. The 4 in the number also stands for the huge 4 inch touchscreen with the new Philips technology that allows it to have a cinema aspect of 21:9. While Philips has demonstrated higher resolution in this aspect, the LG phone will only have 800 by 344-pixel resolution. In addition, Chocolate has the following features which put it over the top:

  • Flash-based 3D UI
  • AGPS
  • WiFi
  • 7.2Mbps HSDPA
  • 5 Mpxl camera

You can see all this and more in the video below. I think you will like what you see:).

    LG Cookie to launch on CDMA networks

    leave a comment »

    Beginning in May, LG will launch a new Cookie phone on CDMA network in the Asia Pacific region. The popular Cookie KP500 phone which currently only works on the GSM network has been rebranded as the KX500 to reduce the confusion and will retail at $276. The phone comes with CDMA2000 1x support and also includes a 3.2 Mpxl camera, accelerometer, touchscreen and other features found in the original Cookie.


    While no plans were announced for an US launch, with the CDMA support, LG can certainly offer the new Cookie to both Verizon Wireless and Sprint.
