LG LC-3200 World Phone
LG this morning unveiled the LC-3200. A compact slider, the 3200 is built for callers who frequently leave their home country, particularly in LG's home territory of southeast Asia. A multi-band CDMA radio lets the LG device automatically connect to the cellular networks of countries as exotic as Thailand and Vietnam. An English dictionary with a pronounciation guide is also present for visitors to Western countries.
Media features are said to be just as important and involve a 1.3-megapixel camera, quick access to MP3 playback, and five preloaded games; talk time is rated at over 2 hours while standby lasts for 120 hours. The phone should be available today through LG Telecom in Korea and may appear in North America for regular travelers.
