LG GD900 with transparent keypad to be launched in May

Presented at MWC 2009 only as a concept, LG GD900 is now functional and, according to LG, it will be presented at CTIA Wireless this week (April 1 – 3, Las Vegas).

The main attraction of GD900 is, of course, its transparent, glass-made sliding keypad, but the handset has much more to offer.
 
It will come with LG’s S-Class Touch UI (like the Arena KM900) and a 3-inch touchscreen display that seems to have a WVGA (480 x 800) resolution.

The phone’s display supports several finger gestures, i.e. if you draw an M on it, the MP3 player will be launched; or, if you draw a circle, you can adjust the music volume.

Starting May, LG GD900 will be available for purchase in Europe and Asia. Its price was not announced, but it will probably be higher than the one of a regular touchscreen phone.
