LG KU990 Ships

LG today sent word that the KU990 had begun shipping to Europe, giving subscribers on the continent access to the touchscreen phone for the first time. The handset emphasizes both the Flash-based interface that shares roots with the Prada phone as well as its advanced 5-megapixel camera. As promised, the camera is the only one of its kind on a phone to allow manual focus for precise shots, and records video at up to 120 frames per second for slow motion sequences. Users can even make basic edits and upload to YouTube from the phone's 3G Internet link, LG says.

The company refrained from providing a full list of carriers receiving the phone, though the first known provider to carry the KU990 is Britain's O2, which lists the phone under its official Viewty nickname. The phone varies in price depending on the plan but is free with higher-end contracts and peaks at 130 ($266) with basic services. An American release has not been set, although the device's support for both HSPA and EDGE points to at least partial support for AT&T and similar networks.
