LG on Friday shipped the KP202, a compact flip-phone for GSM networks. Its highlight is a VGA camera with a relatively rare continuous-shot mode that can capture three images in a row for parties, sports, or other spur-of-the-moment scenes. Onboard memory is reportedly a large 64MB and helps for storing full polyphonic ringtones and still photos.
Intended as a starter phone, the KP202 is on offer for prepaid phone service in the UK at a price of £50 ($99) but should be available for less on subscription plans in Europe. A tri-band radio allows roaming in the US, though LG hasn't extended the handset's sales to the US. [via The Inquirer]
