LG's GD900: has a see-through keypad

If you can see through the marketing hype, you’ll love the GD900. Why? Because it’s apparently the world’s first phone to sport a transparent keypad, which LG said is constructed from a crystal, “glass-like” material.

7.2Mb/s HSDPA and quad-band GSM

Alternatively, the GM730 – one of the first phones to be based on Windows Mobile 6.5 – is supposedly an easy-operation smartphone capable of 7.2Mb/s HSDPA and 2.0Mb/s HSUPA connections.

The GD900 sports identical HSDPA characteristics, yet measures 105 x 52 x 13mm. Its rival measures a slightly larger 110 x 56 x 12mm. Both devices are set-up for quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge connections.

LG’s keeping mum about further technical specifications for either phone, for the time being. However, it said that the GM730 will appear first, during the first half of this year, while the GD900 won’t appear in shops until Q2. ®
