Today, LG announced the GD510 “Pop”, a handset that attempts to build upon the LG Cookie’s success as an entry level touchscreen designed to appeal to the masses. LG sold 7 million Cookies worldwide to date, so it certainly seems to have found the right mix of features and pricing. The Pop will feature a 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen display, 8GB of internal storage, a 3 megapixel camera and a brushed aluminum case with a single multi-function button and a narrow 4.8mm bezel. Sleek and simple, the Pop will become available mid-October throughout Europe with pricing set by each individual market.
No doubt there were a lot of peeved BIS users the day RIM enabled BES 5, but don’t fret – RIM finally just took the wraps off the latest edition of BIS, albeit in a not-so-public way. Discussed in a Knowledge Base article, RIM highlighted a lot of the new features non-corporate BlackBerry users can look forward to. The bad news? Apart from complimentary one way syncing of Gmail accounts via IMAP instead of POP and the ability to edit signatures via the WAP browser, there is really nothing here to get excited about. Well, unless you’re Dutch. Hit the jump for the whole enchilada.
