LG outs GD900 specs

First spotted in mid-February at Mobile World Congress, LG's GD900 handset has received more specifications from its maker. The full touchscreen phone is expected to appear at this week's CTIA Wireless show in Las Vegas and will feature haptic feedback for its 3-inch touchscreen and signature and unique transparent touchpad. LG also claims the touchpad will support finger-writing recognition rather than needing a stylus.

A surprise addition is multi-touch support, which lets users zoom in and out of web pages; a gesture shortcut will help users access shortcuts with a movement of their fingers. For example, users can trace the shape of an M with their finger on the touchpad to bring up the music player. Swirling a finger will rewind or fast forward media.

The official launch of the handset is slated for sometime in May, although no other information, including pricing, is yet known. It's also unclear whether LG has been able to skirt patents owned by Apple for multi-touch on handhelds. [via Pocket-lint]
