LG Shine 3G Wireless

LG is working on an updated version of its distinctive Shine slider, according to Czech site iDNES. Called the KE970, the updated version will boost the all-metal phone's Internet access to support HSDPA for connecting as quickly as 3.6Mbps. A VGA camera will also be hidden inside the display bezel to enable video calls on these faster networks. Other changes will be slight but should involve 512MB of onboard storage to help store music and video without resorting to microSD cards.

The 3G wireless edition of the Shine is expected to reach Europe by the second half of this year. LG hasn't indicated whether or not it will bring a GSM version of the Shine to the US, though the standard 2G version is more likely.
