LG SV280 Slider Phone

LG this morning took a fresher approach to cellphone design and launched the SV280. Not unlike the kick slider of Motorola's RIZR Z8, the Korean-made phone takes its cue from a banana's shape to gently curve the handset when it slides open. This puts both the speaker and the microphone closer to your face, LG says. A rounded body with edge grips also makes for a more comfortable fit.

Media playback is still a focus in the design with a significant 142MB of built-in flash (plus a microSD slot), a 1.3-megapixel camera, and MP3 playback. The SV280 goes live with SKTelecom in Korea today; the likelihood of a North American version is currently slight. Click through for a larger photo.
