LG KF-510

LG Mobile began its week with the release of the KF-510. The slider phone is one of LG's first non-smartphones to ship with a 3-megapixel camera and virtually eliminates physical buttons on the outer shell, replacing them with a touch-sensitive directional pad and action controls. The approach is part of what allows LG package the entire phone in a shell that measures roughly 0.43 inches while improving features over earlier phones such as most Chocolate models.

Most details are still unavailable, though LG confirms the device has a dedicated MP3 player and is likely to use a microSD card slot for storage. LG plans to ship versions in at least metallic dark gray and red colors and also expects to release the phone worldwide in March; no specific regions or even calling frequencies have been revealed, though the phone is likely to support European networks at a minimum.
