LG announces new Android phone

Following news of LG's GD880 and GS200 mobile phones, the CES show, in Las Vegas, has been the centre of a number of new announcements from the company including two contrasting mobile devices.

 

The first, the LG GT540, is a new mobile phone (no images available as yet) aimed at 'first-time smartphone users' and is based upon the Android operating system, with strong social networking capabilities.

 

However, the rest of its features are well worth extra attention, as the phone offers a 320x480 pixel touch-screen with a 'motion UI player' via video playback using the DivX and WMV standards, a three-megapixel camera and microSD support to 32GB of memory, according to the Pocket-lint website. Featured software will include Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube and access to Android Market.

 

The second device, the GW990, is a comparatively large Mobile Internet Device offering  a four-inch widescreen complete with a multi-window, multi-tasking user interface and 3D gaming facilities, according to the Engadget website. Connectivity is supplied via Wi-Fi along with A-GPS and HSDPA while additional features include a five-megapixel camera and a possible facility for VoIP calls.

 

There are no price, distribution or release details available as yet.
