LG GD880 gets small, aluminum design
LG early this morning launched one of its smallest-ever touchscreen phones in the form of the GD880, or Mini. It has a unique waste-nothing design where the 3.2-inch display runs almost directly to the very edge, avoiding some of the bulk of other phones. At the same time, it's relatively thin and minimalist yet should be relatively sturdy with metal accents and an overall solid body.
Inside, it echoes much of what LG has done before and uses LG's conventional but customized OS, with the S-Class UI on top. It supports the company's increasingly common feature set and brings 7.2Mbps 3G, a 5-megapixel camera, GPS and Wi-Fi. LG ships the Mini first to Europe, in March, and will send it elsewhere at a later date with prices to come as each region goes live.
