Nokia E71-like LG GW550 WM smartphone shows up

The GM730 is not the only Windows Mobile handset presented by LG yesterday.

The South Korean company has also unveiled the GW550, a smartphone that runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard, unlike the GM730, which obviously comes with WM 6.1 Professional.

Design-wise, LG GW550 looks like the Nokia E71, one of the most popular Symbian smartphones of 2008 – 2009. But that’s not a bad thing, right?

Here are several images with the new LG WinMo handset:

  • Quad-band GSM connectivity
  • Tri-band UMTS connectivity, 850/1900/2100 MHz
  • HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 2.0Mbps
  • 2.4 inch QVGA display
  • Full QWERTY keyboard
  • 3MP camera
  • 1,300 mAh battery
  • 116 x 61.5 x 12 millimeters

LG didn’t say when the GW550 will be available, and neither for what price.

    The GW550 running windows mobile looks like a phone that will do very well in multiple markets. We are starting to see more phones of this type and I am guessing that people love the basic features. I know that most people use email and texting the most and rarely use most of the other features.
