No touchscreen? Are you sure?

Some people dislike touchscreen mobiles because they’re rarely able to provide any physical typing feedback. But LG’s proven that it has at least one finger on the button, with the launch of a slider phone sporting a bold arrangement of physical keys.

The KS360 doesn’t have a touchscreen, so users must navigate their way around the phone’s 2.4in display using the circular raised keys that are neatly arranged underneath the screen. There's also a slide-out Qwerty keyboard hidden underneath the 240 x 320 pixel resolution display.

Users will get a tri-band GSM connection and the phone also supports Edge. MP3 audio files can be played by the handset and there’s an FM radio built-in too. A two-megapixel camera is integrated into the back of the phone.

Bluetooth and a USB 2.0 port are included for moving data around, but further specifications are still few and far between.

A release date or price for the LG KS360 hasn’t been seen yet.
