LG-KP500: UK's most affordable touchscreen mobile handset coming October


LG has announced its latest full touchscreen mobile phone handset, the LG-KP500, which it claims is the UK’s most affordable yet. We’ll have to take the company’s word on that, because official pricing hasn’t yet been announced.

In fact, details are pretty sketchy all round. Looks wise, it’s slim, encased in black with a titanium rim. Features include handwriting recognition, on-screen QWERTY keyboard, auto-orientation when the handset is turned through 90 degrees, plus a motion sensor for gaming options.

Yes, it does sound remarkably like that “i” phone, doesn’t it, except it comes with a built-in stylus for more accurate tapping of icons. Presumably LG is more concerned over chunky fingers than Apple…
