LG KG320 Phone
Phone customers are used to cellphone manufacturers touting the thinness of their phones. LG has taken a slightly different approach: their new KG320 cellphone is still quite thin at just over 0.4 inches, the company can also contend that the phone also makes very efficient use of the available space. A 1.8-inch screen occupies most of the upper half while the keypad at the bottom runs from edge to edge. Its features are complete if no longer advanced, with 128 MB of onboard memory, Bluetooth, and AAC/MP3 music playback. The KG320 is available now in Europe for the equivalent of $400 US without a contract. North American carriers haven't announced their intent to offer the phone, though LG's recent success with the Chocolate in the US could be very influential.
