LG KS10 Google Phone
LG Mobile this morning shifted attention to software with the unveiling of the KS10 phone, the first fruit of a new deal with Google. In a rare move, the phone is one of the few outside of Nokia to run the Symbian series 60 OS and is much more Internet-friendly than most: Google search helps find information more quickly, while a full web browser is backed by an ultra-quick HSDPA mobile Internet connection. A 2.4-inch LCD gives an easy view of web pages but takes advantage of a slider design to reduce its overall size.
Expectedly for media-savvy, the phone carries all the recording and playback features of LG's newest models, including a 2-megapixel camera and a microSD slot for music and video. It ships this month to Italy and should be available for the rest of Europe and east Asia later in the year. [via AVING]
