At CTIA 2009 LG had a couple working models for its brand new GD900 phone, complete with transparent keyboard and touchscreen. I was able to play around with the LG GD900 phone and see it work for myself.
We captured video and picture footage to share with you. First, a few thoughts about the GD900. Obviously the defining “ooh, ahh” feature is the transparent keyboard. Really, it looks like a piece of clear glass with some numbers etched on it. That’s how simple a concept it is.
But as you will see on the video, the keyboard acts not only as a way to punch numbers and texts into the device, it also acts as a trackpad. You can use either the screen or the keyboard to zoom in and out of pictures and internet (featuring multi-touch!), as well as flipping through the different screens showcased on LG’s new S-Class UI.
As for the rest of the phone’s features and S-Class UI, I will let the video do the rest of the talking. Enjoy!
Update: We really can’t get enough of this phone yet. A large variety of pics of the GD900 has been added to the gallery. Here they are:
