LG's GD900: features gesture recognition and a see-through keypad

First seen at Mobile World Congress in Spain last month, the slider phone’s most unique feature is its transparent keypad - constructed from a crystal, “glass-like” material.

But LG’s since confirmed that “Gesture Shortcut” will also allow users to access their favourite applications with a finger swipe on the keypad – rather than on the screen. For example, draw an “M” on the touchpad and the music player will open.

Its “Touch Wheel” feature sounds much like the iPod scrollwheel, because the GD900 lets users pause, play and rewind multimedia clips with the swirl of a finger.

The LG phone will also feature a setting called “Multi Touch” to help increase the readability of web pages using “simpler zooming in and out”.

Fitted with a 3in LCD, the GD900 has also been equipped with the LG Arena’s 3D Cube interface.

As previously reported, connectivity options on the GD900 extend to 7.2Mb/s HSDPA, 2.0Mb/s HSUPA, Edge and quad-band GSM. It measures 105 x 52 x 13mm.

LG will launch the GD900 phone in May, but we’re still in the dark over when it’ll be available in UK shops from and how much it’ll cost. ®
