LG to out three WM 6.5 handsets soon

LG on Thursday announced it will ship three new Windows Mobile handsets over the course of the next few weeks. By the end of 2010, that number will grow to 13 Windows Mobile cellphones. One of the phones, the GM750 (pictured), will feature a touchscreen interface, another will be a touch slider with a QWERTY keyboard and the third, the GW550, will sport a QWERTY bar form factor. Each will be initially launched in limited markets, including Europe, the US and Asia, before making a global debut.

The new phones will also run on LG's own S-Class 3D user interface to navigate the Windows Mobile operating system. Windows Mobile 6.5 has an improved Internet Explorer Mobile browser with a new engine and a customized version of Adobe Flash Lite. Users will have access to Microsoft's online My Phone backup service for contacts and media.

The GM750 will have a 3-inch touchscreen, and photos reveal it will sport a 5-megapixel camera. More specs on this device or the others are thus far unknown. It launches in Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and the UK via Vodafone and in France via SFR on October 6th, though pricing hasn't been revealed. Dates for the other two handsets haven't been made public.
