LG has launched two new mobile phones, based upon the Android operating system, in Korea. Both are of interest because of their specifications and the features they include.
The LG LU2300 and LG KU9500/SU950 are both powered by the 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and arrive with a 3.5in touchscreen. The latter has an AMOLED specification and packs in 800 x 480 pixels. Both phones also include a 5-megapixel camera. The SU2300 includes a slide-out QWERTY keyboard but also has a built-in trackpad plus DMB TV, Wi-Fi and GPS for location finding. Music fans are looked after via the included Dolby surround sound option.
Both phones also arrive with some intriguing software including LG Air Sync that enables users of the phone to sync contacts, mail, calendar, photos, music and videos with a PC or a web server. You also get an augmented reality app called Scan Search. Other Android apps are also included although no details were available.
The initial release of the phones will see them include version 1.6 of Android with a 2.1 upgrade available in July. There is a possibility of a European launch but no confirmation was supplied.
