The LG U8110Video mobile operator 3 today launched its smallest handset to date: the LG U8110. The company clearly hopes it will attract new customers put off by the clunkiness of video handsets, proclaiming that the clamshell phone is small enough to fit in your pocket or handbag.

The U8110 is also the first LG video handset on sale in Europe. LG's deal with 3 is to deliver three million handsets to the Huntchison Whampoa group this year.

The features are pretty much what you'd expect: the phone measures 95.7mm x 49.5mm x 23.1mm and weighs 126g. The screen is a perfectly respectable 35mm x 44mm, taking up most of the available space. The camera is a built in VGA camera with 2x digital zoom, and has its own light source for photographs or video messages recorded indoors. It also features Quickplay video streaming.

The handset is so far only available on 3's VideoTalk pay monthly plans. Prices start at £49. For more details, go to the product information on 3's website. ®
