LG launches L343i i-mode clamshell phone

Mobile phones

A new addition to O2’s i-mode range is the L343i from LG – an entry-level clamshell phone.

If you want something small that gives you access to i-mode, then the L343i is probably worth a look. Just a touch of the button and you get access to the service, viewed on a 1.7-inch 262k colour TFT screen, so you can book a holiday, browse the houses for sale, access eBay or use the i-mail service to send message to phones or email accounts. Other than that, the specification for this tri-band phone isn’t going to get your pulse racing. The camera is described as "in-built", which sould like VGA, but does have 4x zoom. It also features Bluetooth and has 40 polyphonic ringtones.

The LG L343i will be available exclusively on O2. Price and availability has yet to be confirmed.
