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.
