LG shows slimline 2.2Mp camera phone

But not as thin as Samsung's latest

Mobile application security vulnerability report

LG today touted its latest attempt to claim the crown for the world's thinnest mobile phone handset. The KG320, announced earlier this year, is just 9.9mm thick - only 0.9mm thicker than Samsung's SCH-V870 credit card-shaped handset.

LG's offering is lighter - 73g to 81g - and packs in 128MB of on-board memory, though it apparently lacks a memory card slot. Its display is a 176 x 200, 262,144-colour job, and there's a flash-equipped 2.2 megapixel camera on the back, upgraded from the 1.3-megapixel device touted when the handset was originally announced.

The phone offers tri-band (900/1800/1900MHz) GSM/GPRS connectivity and has Bluetooth on board. There's no word yet on its availability outside Korea. ®
