LG unveils KF700, 600, 510

Demonstrating at the GSMA World Congress in Barcelona, LG has revealed three new KF-series phones. The top of the line is the KF700, which combines both a three-inch touchscreen and a sliding keypad. The firmware, meanwhile, said to feature a "full" web browser, along with audio and video players. For faster control, a special "shortcut dial" on the back of the phone switches between applications.

The KF600 relies even more heavily on its touchscreen, omitting the keypad. The phone does however come with a three-megapixel camera and video recording, and is said to use an unusual trapezoidal design.

The KF510 is a thin, fashion-oriented slider, available in "stardust dark gray" or "sunset red" colors. It is controlled primarily through an animated, backlit touchpad, while an otherwise standard LCD display adjusts to ambient light in order to save power. Aside from looks its biggest feature may be its camera, which starts in one second and is equipped with red-eye reduction and an LED flash. Users can view and record QVGA video.

No prices or release dates have been announced so far.
