LG KU990 Viewty cameraphone

Give a phone a touchscreen and suddenly everyone's interested

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Post-shooting, there are an unusually large variety of effects you can add, with the touchscreen aiding the speed and accuracy of tweaking colours, brightness, adding captions, writing on pics, morphing shots and so on.

The video capture facility on the KU990 is exceptional for a mobile phone. Images can be captured at a variety of resolutions, up to 640 x 480 (VGA), and there’s an option to shoot at 320 x 240 (QVGA) at 120fps – enabling you to shoot and play back footage in slow motion at a higher quality than you’d get on many mobiles at normal speed.

There’s also a surprising range of in-phone video-editing options available too. Production models of the KU990 will have a YouTube application as part of a Google software package, enabling users to upload captured footage straight to the video-sharing site. Our review sample, alas, came without it.

The KU990 comes with around 90MB of user memory inside, although there’s also a Micro SD expansion slot in the battery bay. Anyone thinking of stacking up the high res pics or video footage should invest in a memory card. It will also enable users to make the most of the music player functionality.

The jog ring around the lens does more than just help take pictures: it doubles up as a navigation aid in the menu system, enabling you to scroll up and down menus. It also facilitates quick zooming on web pages and pictures.
