LG GW300, a QWERTY way

Lg GW300Announced last year in August, GW300 is a new concept made by LG electronics and a new way to capture these days market.

It may seem to look like a BlackBerry, but it isn’t because the phone lacks 3G, Wi-Fi and doesn’t offer other social networks than Facebook.

Weighting 95 grams the phone comes with a display having 256.000 colors and 2.4-inches, still this is not the main feature(we think).

The QWERTY keyboard is a must these days and as many mobile phone producers LG saw an income chance. This GW300 model comes with a 4 row keyboard similar to a BlackBerry phone.

Between the Display and the QWERTY keyboard there are 6 buttons(including Call and End Call) and the D-pad.

On the right side of the phone is situated the camera shutter key while on the left we find the volume keys and the microSD card slot(supports up to 16GB). Both side buttons are protected and covered by a plastic lid. At the top of the phone there’s a 3.5 mm and microUSB port.

A 2 megapixel camera is on the back of the phone, but is unimpressive without flash and autofocus. Also on the back, under the case is the 900mAh battery which will hold you up 5 h in talk time and up to 400 h in standby time.

We can’t make much noise about connectivity features, because the phone offers you just GPRS, Bluetooth 2.1. Radio FM is available, messaging seems nice and simple, but the phone will not exceed user expectations.

LG GW300 is available worldwide since October 2009 at an estimated price of $130.
