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.

  • I Have had this phone over a year and it constantly shuts itself off if i close the screen to ‘hard’ which is not hard at all. And does anyone know where to find the emiticon screen on it? can’t find that
    I wouldn’t get this phone again, based on its flaws, sent it away twice now and still same issues. love the keyboard part though.

  • i LOVE THIS phon apart from my m8 always coppies me an its really

  • dat sucks.. i really wanted a touch and a keyboard phone cheap… anyone wants this phone can get it cheap off of ebay. im thinking of getting myself one cuz i think i like it. Can someone tell me if i should get this phone or the palm centro??

  • it is a touch screen…but only for the dialin of the #…it is not touch screen for any of the apps…thats all it is

  • I think you lot r gettin mixed up wiv the LG Veiwty bcuz i have the lg ks360 and it isnt touchscreen

    • I think that YOU are the one getting mixed up. You can only use the touchscreen for dialling numbers. Not for anything else.

  • I’m 10 years old turning 11 like in 1 week and mum said i was allowed to get a webslider. at first i was wondering what it was but then i looked it up on the internet and i thought that it was like the BEST PHONE EVER!!

  • I think the web sllider is a really cool phone the only bad side is that the touch is only on when you type numbers. But that dosent worry me. But i am considering buying this because i like the look.

    If people wont to complain, dont buy it okay.

    I hope i get this phone.

  • Hillary,
    I live in Victoria and yesterday i bought the pink one from KMart.
    i agree, it does look purply in the pictures but it isnt as purply in real life.
    the onyl bad thing with this colour is that in some lights the black around the screen is purple.
    Hope it Helps

  • EVERYONE WHO LIVES IN AUSTRALIA AND WANTS BLUE OR PINK:
    hello! ๐Ÿ™‚ i really want to get a blue or pink one but they only have red and black in Australia at the moment! ๐Ÿ™
    however, 2 days ago i went to an optus shop (brisbane, garden city) and they had a blue one there for display! the lady told me that the blue one will be available within this week!!! :D:D:D
    so that answers the question of when the blue will be out in oz. i aksed if she knows about the pink one and she said she doesnt know when that will be out.

    i hope that was helpfull ๐Ÿ™‚
    also, does anyone know about the colour of the pink one? i mean, in all the pictures on the internet, the pink looks like a musty kind of purple… ๐Ÿ™

    so i dont know if i should wait until the pink comes out and see what the clours like(if it ever does) or get the blue one in a couple of days. because if i buy the blue one and the pink one comes out and its a really nice pink, i think i’d die seeing it around everywhere! lol

    ok well i answered something for all the others in Oz that should be wuite helpfull, so could annyone tell me if the pink one’s coming out.

    And for those who’se country already has pink, what does it one look like? is it a nice really pink colour like the ds or is it purpley?

    please reply! xo.

    Also, what is this talk about the “O2” and “orange” versions? what’s the difference?

    thank you! and sorry for the length!

  • I suggest that if you would like to purchase the phone in a colour thats not available in Australia; Try buying it online.

  • heeey !
    guess what im thinking about getting this phone but first i have a question.
    – in australia does it only come red cos my brother has got red and i wont this phone but if i get red to that would be so gay so like CAN YOU GET THE BLACK AND SILVER ONE IN AUSTRALIA? please answer.

    • no u cant get a black or silver one in australia. the only colours u can get the webslider in is red, pink or blue.

  • yea would love this phone on 02!!! you should seriously consider it! i know friends who arent buying this phone purely because its not on 02!!!

  • Garry – firstly, morons like you tick me off. It’s a QWERTY keyboard because of the Q-W-E-R-T-Y layout at the top. The positioning of the keys is irrelevant. I’m going to assume your objection is because you can’t type on it.. the only way that would matter is if you touch type, and as it’s pretty hard to touch type with just your thumbs (lets be correct and point out its not touch typing using your thumbs so I’m wrong THERE too) you obviously are just a person that can’t adapt to change. So… you know the answer? Don’t get the phone, and don’t make stupid comments about it not being QWERTY if it’s not laid out your way.

    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Is it available on 02 yet? because i dont really want it on orange! can you unlock the phone so it can be on any network?

  • i want this fone and im gettin it today but not if its really bad then im taking it bake
    piece man

    ma mate trikia says hiya all with bananas on top ha ha ha ha ha ha aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    =]

    • Hey Sharon,

      You know, it’s comments like this that makes writing for Tech Digest so fulfilling ๐Ÿ™‚

      Have a great day, and enjoy those bananas.

  • does tha keyboard have to be open to use the camera? i’m considering buying it but i just thought it would be annoying if it had to be open to take a picture

  • Oh hello every body. I’m french. And i buy this phone. He is veryyy good for the keyboard. In france the keyboard is AZERTY. But for you this is a qwerty keyboard ! This phone is very good but i don’t like this blue. Byebye

  • this phone looks sweet cool design why realy care about the button layout hey atleast its got touch screen ,bit strange how it only works for phone calls???

  • Fussy people. At least it has all of the keys of a keyboard in the right order, on the right line! If you don’t like it, don’t buy it.

  • Er… no, that is NOT a qwerty keyboard! Ona qwerty keyboard Z goes to the right of A and B goes to the left of H. Why do they insist on providing smart phones with these hideous mutant keyboards. I miss my Psion 5 ๐Ÿ™
