It’s been knocking around the web for a little while now, but the LG Mini GD880 made its official début at Mobile World Congress today.
For a featurephone, it crams a lot in: there’s a 5 MP camera, Wi-Fi, 7.2 Mbps, HSDPA and an FM tuner. It’s a tiny little mobile too, weighing in at just 99 grams and measuring just a svelte 106mm in depth.
LG’s Air Sync is also really pretty neat sounding; a form of cloud computing so far unique to their smartphones, LG’s Air Sync allow a user to access their PC’s web history and some basic information stored therein, as well as remotely backing up your phones data should it become lost or stolen. Air Sync seems to keep you constantly connected to your desktop, no matter where you are.
“We live in an information-oriented society with vast amounts of data and content scattered all over the place. Because of this, one of the major battles in the future mobile market is likely to be in the data management technology industry, focusing on seamless access among different devices,” said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We have developed the LG Mini, which offers technological integration with its unique LG Air Sync service, in response to this trend.”
Though prices are yet to be confirmed, the LG Mini will be rolling out across Europe in March.
