LG HSDPA phones for Korea
Taking advantage of the SEK expo in Seoul, LG has unveiled a pair of upcoming phones. The highlight of the SH130 slider is its simplicity, since while it has HSDPA broadband -- allowing speeds up to 3.6Mbps -- it omits increasingly prevalent Korean features such as DMB TV. It will neverthless be capable of global roaming, something still rare in the country.
The KH1400 is not identified as having global roaming, but it should compensate with DMB support, aided by a screen that can be twisted to match a normal aspect ratio. Video can sent via output cable to a larger display, and still photos can be taken with a two-megapixel camera. LG has not set a timeframe for the release of either of its new products.
