Many expectant fans of the LG Mini GD880 mobile phone will have been slightly disappointed that the handset has been delayed from the initial, proposed, March release date. However, the company has now confirmed that the mobile will, in fact, be released into European territories sometime this month.
This will be the first LG phone to arrive with a HTML5-compatible web browser known as the Phantom. Based upon Webkit, LG has declared that, “Not only is Phantom faster, it is also fully compatible with today’s most popular websites. Mini’s expanded memory allows for advanced multitasking, supporting up to 10 browser windows open simultaneously. As the first HTML5-compatible feature phone, Mini fully supports Google’s Latitude, Gmail, Calendar, Google Maps and Google Buzz services, with the same functionality and speed as on a desktop PC.”
Features for the phone include a 3.2in touchscreen running at WVGA, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, 3-way syncing, a 5-megapixel camera and a 3.5mm headphone socket.
