LG KH1300 Slider Phone
LG's Cyon brand today launched the KH1300, a 3G phone tailored to CDMA networks. The slider links to HSDPA networks at the full 3.6Mbps speeds of HSDPA. A 3MB song or video clip will download in as little as 7 seconds, by the firm's estimates. Appropriately for its enhanced speed, the KH1300's 1.3-megapixel camera is complemented by a front VGA camera for video calls and messages.
Other staples of the company's cellphones are here, including Bluetooth and a dedicated media jukebox. LG is selling the KH1300 soon in its native Korea for $433 but notes that the handset will roam through much of Asia and Europe. Click through for larger photography.
