LG SH110 Slider Phone

LG this morning launched the SH110, a new slider built for those who may be intimidated by the relatively complex and utilitarian designs of most advanced 3.5G phones. Capable of the 1.8Mbps download speed of HSDPA mobile broadband, the phone has simple, easily understandable buttons; it also abandons the hard-edged designs prevalent in cellphones for a rounded, rubber-like textured border which should be much more comfortable to hold than bare metal or plastic.

Despite this simplicity, LG says, the phone supports the latest media features: a forward-facing VGA camera allows for video chats, while Bluetooth not only supports PC sync and headsets but also sharing music through multiple wireless headphones. MP3 and video playback are also standard and can be used even while using other functions of the phone, the company adds. The phone is available now through the Korean provider SKTelecom; though the handset supports global roaming through CDMA, a North American launch hasn't been announced.
