More info about LG KF700

Yesterday I speculated that the upcoming LG KF700 would be a really interesting full touchscreen feature phone with a focus on it’s multimedia capabilities.

And I was much far off.

Today I got hold on some promotional posters for LG KF700, with a little bit more info about it.

Here’s the juicy bits:

  • (probably) 3.2 megapixel camera (from xml profile on LG site)
  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA connectivity
  • LG KF700 is actually a touchscreen slider. So you can use both sliding keypad and on-screen QWERTY keybord for texting and dialing
  • LG KF700 will come with a big 3″ 240×480 touchscreen
  • LG has finally got to recognizing touch gestures with KF700. Nothing much, but you’ll actually be able to use swipe gesture to scroll through things. No more annoying jog dials ala Viewty. Also drag&drop functionality maybe in store too, but I’m not sure about that.
  • It will also have a third kind of input – a Shortcut Dial wheel on the back, to control on-screen virtual dial that you can see on the display:

That’s basically it for now. I’ll report tomorrow how it really feels to use this phone.

    I just purchased an LG KF700 but I am unable to access a network in the U.S. Any info as to how to access a network would be acpreciated

    Well, it depends on what network you are on.

    AT&T should work fine, but if it's Sprint or Verizon – it won't work, since
    these are not GSM networks for which this phone was designed

    Thanks for the info -
    I am on AT&T network but the phone still cannot lock on to any network. I received a phone call from Smartone Vodaphone in HK that – for me to lock the phone at 1900 range- still network is unavailable.
    This phone does not receive the 850 band ( only a triband) I found out that AT&T works on 1900/850 I guess I am out of luck! I use the Smartone Vodaphone SIM on my quad band Samsung and it picks up the T-mobile network – no problem for roaming.
    But once inserted into the LG KF700 – no network service – a bummer!
