LG has introduced its KS360 slider phone, featuring a full 2.4-inch colour touchscreen and a sliding panel that reveals the full QWERTY keyboard.
It’s aimed at those wanting to send texts, emails, and instant messages, with the keyboard allowing for easier character entry, while the touchscreen still allows for dialling phone numbers.
The phone isn’t 3G, but for messaging applications that really isn’t a problem. It features a two megapixel camera, up to 4GB of MicroSD storage, Bluetooth, USB, polyphonic ringtones, MPEG4 video and MP3/AAC audio, and a WAP 2.0 browser.
Available in a range of colours — titanium and bright blue, white and soft pink, black and red, and black and silver — it will be available from August, initially on O2 and Orange, with pricing and deals to be confirmed.
