LG touts 'super 3G' widescreen slider phone

High-speed video calls

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Korean industrial giant LG this week attempted to attract local buyers with a new HSDPA handset designed to allow them to make video calls in widescreen, though it'll be handy for video playback too, we'd guess.

LG's offering is the Cyon-branded slider dubbed both the LG-SGH100 and the LG-KH1000. Not only does it operate as a regular slider, but it also slides sideways so it can be used in landscape orientation for a widescreen effect.

The phone weighs 125g and measures 9.8 x 5.2 x 2.1cm and sports a 2.2in, 240 x 320 - or 320 x 240 if you hold it the other way round - display capable of showing 262,144 colours. There's a 1.3 megapixel camera and a VGA video call cam. LG's packed in plenty of memory: 2GB of Flash and 1GB of SDRAM, or 512MB of Flash and 256MB of SDRAM, depending on which of the two models you pick.
