LG to take on iPhone with 'super 3G' tablet

Prada lookalike

Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

With so many handsets already available, it’s inevitable that some will look a little similar. But, LG’s new KS20 handset looks like the recently separated twin of the manker's existing Prada handset.

LG's KS20: 3.6Mb/s HSDPA and a 2.8in touchscreen

Cunningly released just a few days before the iPhone goes on sale in the UK, the KS20 has a 2.8in touchscreen allowing users to view web pages downloaded over 3.6Mb/s HSPDA 3G connections. The tri-band GSM handset also includes 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity, with Bluetooth 2.0 for short-range communication.

The phone ships with a 128MB internal memory and accepts Micro SD cards for storing pictures taken on its two-megapixel camera. However, it also acts as a multimedia device and stores video and music files, including MPEG 4 and MP3 formats, respectively. An FM radio’s included too.

Running on the Windows Mobile 6 OS, the handset gives around four hours of talk time and a good 400 hours in standby, LG claimed.

LG said the phone is available in “major” European countries today, so the UK should be in for a delivery. A price hasn’t been confirmed, though.
