LG unveils three touch handsets


The first was the KF700 which offers three different input methods via a three inch touchscreen, alphanumeric keypad or a shortcut dial. The shortcut dial is located on the back of the handset and allows users to scroll through six shortcuts via a virtual dial, which is displayed on screen.

Other key features include a full web browser, 3 megapixel camera, digital audio and video players, HSPDA and EDGE technology.

LG also revealed the KF600, which incorporates an InteractPad that replaces a key pad with virtual keys on the screen. The interface continually changes so as to only display buttons that are relevant to what the user is trying to accomplish.

The KF600 also features eight design themes, touch control games, MP3 player, FM radio, 3 megapixel camera and a camcorder.

The third touch handset to be unveiled was the KF510, which is only10.9mm thick. The KF510 is a slider handset that comes with a strong metal frame and tempered glass for added durability.

The KF7510 is available in either Sunset Red or Stardust Dark Gray colours and its screen provides interactive touch lighting and emotional animation. The handset also comes with a multi function 3 megapixel camera an MP3 player, Bluetooth, FM radio and EDGE technology.

All three handsets are due for release in the UK either Q1 or Q2 and no pricing or network details are currently available.
