Vodafone to serve up LG's 3G Chocolate phone

Xmas line-up beefed up with Motorola KRZR, RAZR Maxx

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Vodafone will bring the 3G version of LG's Chocolate slider phone to the UK this Christmas, the carrier revealed yesterday. The KU800 will join LG's low-end 3G clamshell phone the L600V as the first two LG handsets the network has offered to UK buyers.

While Vodafone has the L600V as an exclusive, other networks will offer the KU800. The Chocolate handset sports a front-facing camera for video calls and a two megapixel unit on the back for snapshots. Vodafone and LG didn't say much about the KU800' specifications, but the handset is believed to have a 176 x 220, 262,144-colour display, 64MB of memory, a MicroSD card slot, and all the usual messaging and media playback tools.

Vodafone's Christmas line-up includes Motorola's 3G RAZR, the RAZR Maxx V6, and the narrower follow up to the original RAZR, the 2.5G KRZR K1.

The KRZR K1 cuts 1cm off the RAZR's width, but still crams in a two megapixel camera with 8x digital zoom, Bluetooth stereo audio, a MicroSD slot for memory expansion and EDGE support for faster GPRS downloads into its clamshell case. The handset measures a mere 10.3 x 4.2 x 1.6cm and weighs 102g.

The RAZR MAXX delivers the classic RAZR clamshell styling, but adds a front-mounted VGA camera for 3G video calling. The main camera is the same 2Mp job with 8x digital zoom that Motorola's other new handsets sport, as is the stereo-enabled Bluetooth 2.0 adaptor. The MAXX has 50MB of user-accessible memory. It's no standard 3G phone - the MAXX also incorporates the HSDPA high-speed download system for data transfers of up to 3.6Mbps. ®
