LG has announced the forthcoming launch of a new mobile phone targeted at the budget sector.
In amongst the gamut of news from a variety of mobile companies shouting about top-end features and advanced technologies such as LG's own Viewty Smart and Chocolate, it is all too easy to forget that not everyone can afford or even needs such facilities. Many mobile users just want to perform that old fashioned, popular, yet largely unsung activity - making a phone call. The new LG GB109 handset is designed to do just that and not a lot more.
To be initially released into Russia, the GB109 will feature a 1.5in CSTN display packing in 65K colours. Entertainment will be provided for by a stereo FM radio whilst productivity will be supplied by a built in organizer. The phone will be run by a 950 mAh battery that can last up to six hours in talk-time or up to 440 hours in stand-by time, according to the Widgetbox website
The chassis of the new handset will also include quick-access keys for both the FM radio and messaging. No UK price or distribution has been revealed as yet.
