For something that looked so light and placcy, I’m rather impressed with the see through LG GD900. Do forgive my colleague for her bytes/bits slip. Rest assured she will be disciplined. That said, nice demo of the features from Lady Za Za.
The motion finger control action, for which LG appears to have no name, does look a little on the gimmicky side but then, let’s face it, so’s the idea of a transparent mobile phone. Fortunately, the 8-megapixel shooter hoiks the it up into the realms of the serious and I’m sure, all in all, it’s a handset that’ll go down very nicely with Joe and Jane Public.
As the lady says, it’s out from 1st July from them over at the Carphone Warehouse.
Let’s start with the easy part. The HTC Magic is a great phone. Android is bloody ace and I don’t suppose there was much of a chance of the handset makers mucking this one up after doing such a good job of implementing the OS on the G1. What they have done is made the thing a lot prettier at the expense of the hard keyboard.
Slightly sad to lose the traditional finger tapper initially but you get into the touch typing very quick. Cupcake’s a welcome addition to the experience with all the video goodness it brings and the paid for apps but there are still a couple of niggles. I’ll let Zara explain.
The thing is, you can get picky about these issues – and essentially it’s my job to do so – but there’s nothing really wrong with this handset. Don’t rely on it as your main camera but, other than, that I’d give it Dan’s big Tech Digest thumbs up. You can grab it from £30 per month on Voda through the link below. Enjoy, and happy browsing.
