New LG Mini mobile phone launched
Manama, July 20, 2010
LG Electronics has officially launched its new LG Mini (LG GD880), a pocket-size communication hub that maximises the mobile web experience.
LG Mini is the first phone to use LG’s HTML 5-compatible Phantom Browser, which offers a much faster and more stable internet experience. Mini also includes special internet applications and social network connection features.
LG Mini is a 3.2-inch full touchscreen phone that feels solid in the hand and is small enough to fit into any pocket. It features a button-free face and textured metal accents on the sides. This design won LG Mini a red dot award and if product design award in March.
“Our research shows that most people think current full touchscreen phones especially smartphones - are too bulky, too clunky and too difficult to use,” said H S Paik, president of LG Electronics Gulf FZE.
“We developed LG Mini to deliver the smartphone-like features that people want in a beautiful and compact package that is also user-friendly.”
Mini’s expanded memory allows for advanced multitasking, supporting up to 10 browsers windows open simultaneously.
Social network connectivity is fully integrated into LG Mini, making updates on popular social networks sites including Facebook and Twitter simpler and faster.
LG Mini also supports LG Air Sync, which wirelessly synchronises information and data to a computer, the web and the phone. Even if the phone is misplaced, important data can still be accessed from any PC. LG's new On Screen Phone feature makes controlling Mini even easier. It shows the phone’s interface on a computer screen so files can be dragged and dropped directly from the phone to a computer.
Applications from BBC News and AccuWeather are pre-installed and content from partner Amazon, CNN International, The New York Times, eBay and Fox News will be available through the LG Widget Gallery.
LG Mini also offers push email, 5.0 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, FM radio and 7.2 Mbps HDSPA.-TradeArabia News Service
