LG unveils HSDPA two-way slider phone

Mobile phones

LG has unveiled a new HSDPA (or super 3G) handset in Korea, with the big selling point being the ability to make video calls in widescreen or indeed for video playback in landscape.

The phone, which is Cyon-branded, goes under the name of either the LG-SGH100 or the LG-KH1000, dependent on the specification. It’s a slider, but not just a regular slider, it also slides sideways for the widescreen effect. The phone features a 2.2-inch, 240 x 320 (or 320 x 240 if you hold it the other way round) display capable of showing 262,144 colours. There’s a 1.3mp camera, a VGA video call cam and 2GB of Flash and 1GB of SDRAM, or 512MB of Flash and 256MB of SDRAM, depending on your choice of model.

No news of a UK launch for this, but it’s due on sale in Korea for the equivalent of £464.
