LG KS20 Looks Like a Beautiful Offering - but Lacks some Key Features
"As expected, today during its IFA press conference, LG officially unveiled the LG KS20, LG's brand now Prada look-alike Windows Mobile 6 Professional HSDPA smartphone with a large color touchscreen. It features full internet browsing capabilities and downloads everything from music and video clips to push E-Mail at speed of 3.6 Mbps through HSDPA. The KS20 supports triband (900/1800/1900 MHz) GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as singleband UMTS and HSDPA up to 3.6 Mbps. Furthermore it supports Bluetooth 2.0 but WiFi support is left. The QVGA display measures 2.8" and supports the Windows Mobile typical 65k colors only."
In his post, Arne Hess also says the phone supports videoconferencing with the phone's dual 2 MB cameras. Unfortunately, it appears that wifi will not be universal, perhaps vendor-specific. Vodafone will not offer it with wifi, though the screenshot above shows it enabled. The phone looks nice and sleek, but having a wifi option would be important if I were replacing my PDA.
