LG's popular KF700 multimedia slider is now available in Europe, with other markets to follow later this year.
LG today released its LG KF700, a new multimedia slider that we first saw at 3GSM World Congress earlier this year. The KF700 is LG's first phone to integrate three separate input methods, including a 3-inch touchscreen, alpha-numeric keypad and shortcut dial.
The KF700's 3-inch touchscreen offers a wide aspect ratio to improve the experience when watching movies or browsing the internet. The shortcut dial on the back of the phone scrolls through six user-selected features by controlling a virtual dial on screen. It can also be used to zoom in on web pages, scroll through e-mails or adjust volume.
A full featured web browser is claimed to provide full access to Google Search, Blogs, Gmail, Maps and You Tube. Other features include an MP3 player, MPEG4 video player, 3-megapixel camera and Bluetooth connectivity.
The LG KF700 is now available with European HSDPA support throughout Europe, and will become available in other markets in the following months.
