The LG GD900, which features the world’s first transparent touchpad, will be available exclusively at The Carphone Warehouse from July 1.
The slider phone features the manufacturer’s new 3D user interface (as seen on the LG Arena) and a fully transparent touchpad made from durable tempered glass, encased within a frame that LG said is able to absorb shock and vibration.
The Crystal Touchpad also comes with Gesture Shortcuts that enable users to configure their favourite shortcut with a gesture of the finger, reducing the steps required to access multi-tasking features. For example, users can immediately jump to the web browser when writing an email by tracing a symbol on the touchpad with their finger.
LG Mobile UK head of marketing Jeremy Newing said: “We are constantly looking at ways to produce awe-inspiring products, ones that capture imagination of consumers. This is a handset that reaffirms our approach to product design, combining stunning visual appeal as well as the latest technology.”
