As promised, I’ve snapped a few piccies of LG’s new S60 handset. It’s a very unique design – on the outside it looks like a classy but retro handset with just basic buttons and a small display…
…however open it up and you have a mini communicator! Full QWERTY keyboard, landscape screen and stereo speakers! Pretty nifty!
Btw, it seems there was a typo in the press release and it’s main screen is the usual QVGA resolution, not VGA.

The MWC hasn’t officially opened yet and two of our licensees have already announced new devices using Symbian OS. Joy!
Sony Ericsson has shown off two new UIQ / Symbian OS devices: The G700 and G900. Both are very slinky (13mm thick) candy-bar phones with touchscreens, 3G and decent cameras. In the case of the G900 it’s a very decent camera: 5mP with auto-focus! How on earth did they cram that into such a thin package?
More info can be found in the following:
LG have just announced their KT610. It’s running S60 3rd edition Feature Pack 1 (which is built on Symbian OS 9.2). It features GPS, HSDPA (3.6Mbps), QWERTY keyboad and a 2.4″ QVGA screen. Sweet! Unfortunately there don’t seem to be photos available just yet, but fear not -as soon as I finish my morning shift at the Symbian stand I’ll head over to LG and snap some… well, unless William beats me to it!
