LG certainly has a huge presence at CES this year with displays and phones almost everywhere you turn. So sit back while we bring all the handsets right to you and make you feel like you were here. Sort of. While we’ve seen of these phones before, there are a few that are still awaiting official details from LG. So here are some pics and details to hold you over for now, after the break. More →
What better way to get our attention early on a Thursday morning that with a press non-release? LG has announced that it will take the wraps off of three upcoming Windows Mobile 6.5-powered Windows Phones in the coming weeks and that 10 more will be made available throughout 2010. An attempt to cut leaks off at the pass? An open invitation for bloggers to start digging for dirt? The thing is, the GW550 and the caption about it being one of the first three to drop, we have no idea what we’re in for. Of course, seeing as the GW550 is already known to us as a Windows Mobile 6.1 device, we can’t help but think we may see more shenanigans that involve claiming a phone with an updated OS is as good as new. Still, we’re definitely looking forward to having LG tells us just what the full-touchscreen handset and QWERTY slider that will join the GW550 are all about. So, LG… Make with the goods!
No, it’s not quite as exciting or sexy as the Aigen GM730 but the new GM550 smartphone is will likely make business users raise an eyebrow. Like the HTC Snap, The GM550 is a Windows Mobile 6.1-powered handset designed with pure business users in its sights. To compliment a smooth and sleek minimal design, LG has packed an E71esque QWERTY, 2.4-inch QVGA display, a 3 megapixel camera, 7.2Mbps HSDPA / 2Mbps HSUPA, stereo speakers and a 1300 mAh battery into the GW550. While the company has yet to reveal pricing or a release date, the handset does pack quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and “global 3G” so carrier support or not, it will definitely be an option for business-minded users here in the US. So what do you think, GW550 or Snap? Hit the jump for two more pics.
