LG outs GW520 handset

On Friday, LG has unveiled its GW520 Calisto handset for the UK market. The horizontal slider sports both a 2.8-inch touchscreen and a full hardware QWERTY keyboard. The handset will support the by-now standard 3G over HSPA. Like the GT505, it supports push updates from social networks; it also supports push email from Microsoft Exchange.

LG's LiveSquare feature is likewise included, allowing users to set custom animated characters to the contacts they interact with most and have them pop up on the home screen. The GW520 will be offered by the majority of UK cell providers starting in June, though pricing has not been revealed.
