Details on the transparent LG-GD900 mobile phone


LG has released details of their transparent phone, the LG GD900, which will be on show at CTIA this week. The handset, which first graced the stage at MWC 2009, will have a 3-inch touchscreen with fingerwriting recognition, haptic feedback and multi-touch for zooming in and out of your favourite web pages.

No word on the rest of the details regarding connectivity, memory and camera capability but LG does seem to have put their full force behind the interface which will allow programmable gesture control – for application shortcuts – and an on-screen touch wheel to0 to control music and video playback. It all sounds rather borrowed from Apple but then all the best stuff is, so what the hell.

Apart from standard voice and photo capabilities, the Transformer can be physically configured to perform a number of functions, including holographic and video projection, 3-D object scanning, and it’ll even double as a lie detector.
