LG Electronics says it's developed its newest touch-screen phone – the LG GD880, also known as the LG Mini – because consumers were unhappy with touch-screen phones that were too bulky, too clunky and too expensive. Those were the words of Dr Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG's Mobile business.
The LG Mini is currently the smallest and slimmest 3.2-inch full touch-screen phone on the market. It includes a social network aggregator, which is rapidly becoming a favourite feature for manufacturers, and has a 5-megapixel camera. There's also 7.2Mbps HSDPA, WiFi and GPS. Availability in Europe is expected next month.
