LG KB1800 Phone With TV
LG today revealed its new KB1800 phone, a model tailor-made for viewing the mobile TV broadcasts that are increasingly popular in the company's native Korea as well as abroad. In contrast to most such phones, the KB1800 will have a PC output, allowing an attached computer to play and even record live shows. LG says it has also made viewability a top priority with the new model and has incorporated a new screen that can be easily seen in real-world conditions, whether in broad daylight or at a sharp angle. The handset also has a fully adjustable external antenna that can pivot to improve reception regardless of the exact viewing position. A Mobile XD graphics engine is also said to improve the quality of the final image. LG hopes to ship the KB1800 soon under its Cyon label in Korea.
