LG's Korean label CYON (high-bandwidth site) today pointed to what it believes is the future of phones with the release of the LH2300. While almost entirely dominated by its touchscreen like some newer LG phones, the new device is rare for including a wide VGA (800x480) 3-inch display sharp enough for DVD-level playback and for viewing websites at a resolution far closer to their native display. The 3G phone will also have quicker access to its web features with a key that jumps to the browser and a jogwheel for rapidly scrolling through pages without a complex onscreen interface.
Not content with just the release of the upgraded Chocolate, LG's home cellphone brand CYON today unveiled the LB3300. Nicknamed the Rhapsody in Music, the slider is built for quick music access and includes a circular scroll wheel for navigating menus and song lists much like that of the original iPod. Unlike its American sibling, the Rhapsody already includes 1GB of built-in memory to store music as well as a microSD slot for more. In Korea, the device also carries a DMB tuner that picks up over-the-air digital TV broadcasts.
