LG GD900 'very soon'
LG's GD900 Crystal phone -- based on the current KM900 Arena -- should finally be ready to ship in the near future, according to an announcement. Originally anticipated for May, the phone is now scheduled to debut "very soon" in some 40 countires across Asia, Europe and Latin America, notably excluding North America. Rumored pricing is approximately €450 ($622), though subsidies and other factors may lower end costs.
Beyond a transparent illuminated keypad, the phone features a three-inch WVGA touchscreen, and an eight-megapixel camera with flash and autofocus. Supported connections include Wi-Fi, HSDPA and TV-out, among others, and internal storage has been sized at 1.5GB. Two color schemes will be available, chrome and titanium.
