LG Debuts SB190 Slider
LG's Korean division Cyon this morning revealed the SB190, a slider phone made initially for the country's well-known cellular provider SK Telecom. The new phone brings digital mobile TV to the middle of the range, an area most manufacturers neglect in favor of high-end models. Other aspects of the phone are just as capable, LG says. Owners have direct access to GPS mapping, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and EVDO broadband.
The phone should be available today in Korea, but may find its way to the US through the virtual carrier Helio, which was co-founded by SK Telecom and can already support GPS mapping features. A complete photo of the phone is available after the jump.
