LG isn’t all about smartphones and tablets at MWC 2011. The South Korean company has also showcased some new featurephones, and we’ve checked out two of them (which try to follow the footsteps of Samsung’s Corby handsets).
The first one is the LG T500, a small candybar that measures 105 x 57 x 12.9 mm and features a 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen display, push e-mail, social networking integration, Webkit browser, and a camera on the back.
There will be a Wi-Fi version of the T500 (called LG T505), and an NFC one (called LG T535). All three versions should be launched in the next few months.
The second new LG featurephone is the Etna 11 C330, which comes with a sliding QWERTY keyboard and a “teenage targeted cartoon UI.” The phone also has a 2.4 inch QVGA touchscreen display, social networking widgets (Facebook, Twitter), push email, and a photo camera. Like the T500, the C330 doesn’t feature 3G connectivity.
LG said nothing about the prices of these new handsets, but they’ll surely not be high.
