LG, it seems, has accepted that the Symbian S60 combo might help to propel their smartphone business all the way to the top. Or at least, they thought so with the KT610, a QWERTY keyboard equipped folding handset first announced in Mobile World Congress 2008 that runs on Symbian with the Series 60 user interface.
At first, you’d think that the LG KT610 won’t be able to do much, because a small dash of a horizontal display and a huge numeric keypad are all that can be afforded by its unassuming front face. But if you ease open the flap of this side-folding clamshell, you’ll find that you’re in for a bit of a surprise.
Inside the LG KT610 is a larger display, and this is where you’ll be able to operate the smartphone part of the phone. It actually runs with Series 60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1, so Nokia smartphone users will feel right at home. Newcomers to this environment won’t be having a hard time since S60 is billed and famous for being user-friendly.
Also included in the LG KT610′s features is a 2 megapixel camera, built-in GPS and Bluetooth 2.0, full-QWERTY keyboard and microSD card slot.
And now that some live pics of the LG KT610 have surfaced, it shouldn’t be long for the device itself to finally arrive.
