LG launches new handsets

LG Electronics launches the LG-KF700, a new handset with an optimized user interface that makes use of touch technology. Further highlights include three other handsets featuring touch technology: the convenience-oriented LG-KF600, the slim and stylish Design with interactive touch lighting phone LG-KF510, and a professional-level camera phone, the LG Viewty.

At the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2008, LG will build on the momentum for touchscreen phones that it generated last year when it launched the PRADA Phone by LG, the first phone with a full LCD touchscreen. The company developed its new phones based on insight from customers and designed them to be easier and more convenient to use.

The LG-KF700 includes multiple input methods including an adaptable touchscreen, keystroke-saving Shortcut Dial and numeric keypad, which help optimize this multimedia phone for users’ needs. The LG-KF600’s revolutionary InteractPad feeds forward commands to users and seems almost to read their minds. LG Viewty has already received accolades for its high-end digital camera functions and full touchscreen LCD, which have driven sales to more than 750,000 units since its European launch last November. The super slim LG-KF510 provides animated feedback to users with its unique, touch sensitive LED panel. Both the LG-KF600 and LG Viewty received the prestigious iF Product Design Award in 2008.

LG’s highlighted products at the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2008 include:

LG-KF700: Combining three separate input methods, the LG-KF700 provides easy access to its powerful multimedia features, which include a full web browser, digital audio and video players as well as handy widgets. Up front, the phone’s high resolution 3-inch full touchscreen LCD provides an optimized interface for each of the phone’s features and is perfect for watching video content. The Shortcut Dial on the back provides and easy and intuitive way to switch among frequently used applications. Making phone calls couldn’t be simpler, thanks to the LG-KF700’s sliding alpha-numeric keypad.

LG-KF600: The LG-KF600 is so intuitive that it seems almost to read your mind. The phone’s InteractPad replaces physical buttons with virtual navigation keys that feed-forward menus that are tailored to fit the task at hand. The InteractPad eliminates the need to memorize which key does what when using the phone’s 3 megapixel camera, MP3 player, video recorder and even when making phone calls or sending text messages. The LG-KF600 is as stylish as it is functional, with a high-gloss finish and easy to grip trapezoidal shape. The phone won a 2008 iF Product Design Award.

LG Viewty (LG-KU990): The LG Viewty, a professional-level camera phone, includes features found on many high-end stand-alone cameras, including a manual focus option, an image stabilizer and an ISO up to 800 for indoor or night shooting. The phone, equipped with 5.0 Megapixel camera, also records video at up to 120 frames per second, the highest frame speed ever for a handset camera, which can be edited and uploaded directly to YouTube. A 3.0-inch touch screen and Mobile XD engine provide a wider and more vivid display while a jog wheel on the back maximizes usability. An attached stylus allows users to digitally “write” on photos and edit files.

LG-KF510: The extra slim and superbly beautiful LG-KF510 slider phone represents the height of fashion and the best in technology. Gradated metallic Stardust Dark Gray and Sunset Red color schemes form the basis for its design, reinforced by a dynamic touchpad with interactive touch lighting and emotional animation. The LCD includes power saving auto luminance control and is covered by tempered glass, which gives the phone a great sheen and lasting durability. The phone’s Smart Camera has a startup time about one second, image stabilization, LED flash and red eye reduction. Rounding out the features are an MP3 player and the ability to record and play back QVGA video.

LG-KS20: The updated LG-KS20 slim smartphone, is designed to enrich the mobile internet experience. 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. It also allows for advanced features like video-conferencing, taking advantage of the phone’s dual cameras. The LG-KS20’s minimalist concept will appeal to those who admire a phone for its design as much as its features. The phone uses an intuitive touch input technology and large LCD screen to maximize its internet usability. The handset is powered by Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6 software.

Motorola Reports Continued Q1 Losses

Motorola announced continued losses for its handset unit today, sending its shares down by as much as 16% in morning trading.  The U.S. handset manufacturer said it expects to post an operating loss for the current quarter due to a slower than expected recovery in its handset business.  The announcement overshadowed the company’s Q4 results, which, while not positive, were in line with expectations.

For Q4, Motorola posted an operating loss of $388 million, compared with a profit of $341 million for the same quarter a year earlier. Sales of mobile phones fell 38% to $4.8 billion, with 40.9 million units sold.

Motorola’s new CEO Greg Brown admitted the company’s previous strategy to return the handset business to profitability was not working. “We are focused on aggressively rationalizing the company’s cost structure and working to get Mobile Devices back on track,” Brown said, via a statement. “The recovery in Mobile Devices will take longer than expected and there is a lot more work to be done.”

For the current quarter, the company forecast continuing operating losses per share of 5 to 7 cents, before any reorganization charges, while analysts had expected a profit of as much as 10 cents per share for the first quarter of 2008.

In more bad news for Motorola, the UK’s Financial Services Authority (FSA) has launched an investigation of insider trading regarding the company’s purchase of TTP Communications in 2006. The FSA accused Christopher McQuoid and James Melbourne, former general counsel for TTP Communications, of having knowledge of Motorola’s plans to purchase the company, when the two purchased more than 153,000 shares in the company. Both pleaded not guilty.

    Nokia 6120 – Classic mobile

    nokia6120.gif 

    The 6120 Classic is a classic-looking Nokia finished with attractive chromed highlights (available in black, white and pink). It’s a slimline phone with a large screen, and an easy-to-use keypad and 5-way navigation key. Like the very popular 6300, it gives the impression of an old-fashioned Nokia (which is a good thing) as if the company has learned some lessons and is getting back to what it used to do so well – making great phones that do just what you want.Technorati Profile

    Microsoft in competition with iphone

    Microsoft said that it was “not unreasonable” to speculate that the company could introduce a smartphone based on its Zune digital music player, in direct competition with Apple’s iPhone.

    Since Microsoft first announced its Zune digital music player, the idea of a converged Zune/smartphone product has been the topic of speculation. Initially the company responded that a Zune phone was definitely in the works, but then earlier this year CEO Steve Ballmer said that a Zune phone was not on the company’s planning table, but that it could add more music and gaming functions to its Windows Mobile platform.

    Currently Microsoft’s mobile phone focus has been primarily on providing its platform, Window’s Mobile, to handset manufacturers, but the company said that, going forward, integrating device and software production might make sense.
