Three European LG phones

Three new LG phones have been announced for European markets. The top end is represented by the KE590, a slider with a two-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, and MP3 playback. 56MB of user memory is onboard, which can be expanded with microSD cards. The phone's main limitation is video playback, which is limited to 15fps 3GP. The KG291 is similar in many respects to the 590, but lacks its metallic design cues. The camera has also been scaled back to 1.3 megapixels, and user memory is just 7MB. Both the 291 and 590 are tri-band GSM phones that will be carried on networks such as Italy's Wind.

Between the two sits the KU380, which makes sacrifices and improvements. In the latter category is broadband through UMTS, making the phone one of the lowest-end 3G models LG offers. The phone also benefits from 60MB of memory, a microSD slot and a 262,000 color screen, but Bluetooth support is reduced to 1.2. Carriers should include Orange and Italian TIM networks.
