VGA screen and Qwerty keypad, anyone?

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Mobile World Congress Seoul-based phone maker LG has quietly shown the latest addition to its smartphone range - the LG-KT610, a clamshell handset with a 2.4in, 640 x 480 flip screen and Qwerty keypad.

Details on this handset have been sketchy, but we can say it runs on Symbian 9.2 and the S60 user interface. According to LG, the KT610's users can "take full advantage of a rich suite of multimedia features and applications".
