LG Shines in Black
LG has announced the production of a new phone in its Shine series, the Titanium Black. While the product is based on the original Shine, first revealed in October of last year, the new one is an aesthetic revision distinguished by its gunmetal tint, which does in fact use real metal unlike many of its rivals.
Internal features are tapped to include Bluetooth and a two-megapixel camera, as well as music playback that includes MP3, WAV, and AAC++ files. The phone is comparatively limited in terms of data however, since broadband Internet is restricted to EDGE. The Black should ship to Austria, France, the UK and the Netherlands at the end of July.
