Build a business case: developing custom apps

MWC LG’s recently unveiled Arena was the first handset to introduce the Korean company's new S-Class 3D UI, but the firm’s since unveiled two more sexy touchscreen devices running the cube-based menu system - including one with a transparent touchpad.

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.

The GM730 will be one of the first phones running Windows Mobile 6.5

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. ®
