While Arena and GM730 are using Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, the KT770 runs on Symbian S60 3rd Edition, being a rarity in LG’s family of products.
It would have been interesting for it to come with the latest Symbian S60 5th Edition platform – just like Nokia N97 or the 8MP Samsung Omnia HD (also known as Acme i8910) – but it looks like LG isn’t ready to offer a full-touch Symbian smartphone yet.
According to the info available at LG’s MWC-dedicated website (which I find far from being user-friendly), LG KT770’s specs and features include:
- Quad band GSM/EDGE connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
- Dual band UMTS/HSDPA connectivity (850/2100 MHz or 900/2100 MHz)
- 2.8 inch TFT display with 240 x 400 pixels and 256K colors
- Full Internet browser
- 5MP autofocus camera
- 1GB / 2GB of internal memory
- MicroSD card support, up to 16GB
- 111 x 51.5 x 15.8 mm
Overall, this new slider is quite attractive, and if its price (unknown for the moment) will be decent, it might very well steal a bit from Nokia’s Symbian smartphones’ success.
As for its availability, LG KT770 should be on sale starting the next few months, although an exact release date was not given.
