LG today officially launched its new LG Mini (LG GD880), a pocket-size phone that uses LG?s HTML 5-compatible Phantom browser.
Mini also includes special internet applications and social network connection features.
LG Mini is a 3.2-inch full touchscreen phone small enough to fit into any pocket. A button-free face contributes to Mini's simple and sleek personality while textured metal accents on the sides add to the phone's visual appeal without detracting from its clean look. This design won LG Mini a red dot award and iF product design award in March.
Built for speed using the latest Webkit standards, the Phantom Browser is fully compatible with today?s most popular websites. Mini?s expanded memory allows for advanced multitasking, supporting up to 10 browser windows open simultaneously.
Social network connectivity is fully integrated into LG Mini so keeping in touch with online friends and making updates on popular social networks sites including Facebook and Twitter is simpler. LG Mini also supports LG Air Sync, which wirelessly synchronizes information and data to a computer, the web and the phone.
LG's new On Screen Phone feature makes controlling Mini even easier. It shows the phone?s interface on a computer screen so files can be dragged and dropped directly from the phone to a computer.
Online Applications provide access to late-breaking information and entertainment in real-time. Applications from BBC News and AccuWeather are pre-installed and content from LG's partners Amazon, CNN International, The New York Times, eBay and Fox News will be available through the LG Widget Gallery.
LG Mini also offers push email, 5.0 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, FM radio and 7.2 Mbps HDSPA.
The LG Mini will be available in April starting in Europe followed by other regions.
