LG SV260 Rivals RAZR

LG on Tuesday stepped up its challenges to Motorola's more recent clamshell phones by introducing the SV260. Part of the Korean company's Style line, the phone is housed in brushed metal and measures a relatively slim 0.69 inches when fully closed. A larger than average 2-inch LCD distinguishes the inside. Despite the emphasis on appearance, the SV260 also has its unique practical elements, LG says: the metal folder has its own extensive text-to-speech functions and translates caller information, contact lists, and schedules to the spoken word. It improves even on the internationally-oriented LC-3200 by voicing English words from its built-in dictionary.

A 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and 160 minutes of talk time are standard. The SV260 should be available now through Korea's carrier SKT; a US release is uncertain.
