LG Arena GT950, mid-level touchscreen candybar gets spied on it way to AT&T

Not everyone wants a super duper smartphone, some people prefer the simplicity of a feature phone and it looks like LG may be sending such a phone to AT&T. A series of leaked spy shots show a customized LG Arena KM900 sporting AT&T branding.  The GT950 will feature a 3 inch, 800×480 touchscreen display, 5 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi, 8GB of internal memory and LG’s whizbang S-Class UI. No word on pricing or launch date but from the finished look of the product it could be quite soon. Hit the jump for a few more spy shots. More →

Hands on with the LG GD900

Hands on with the LG GD900

We first posted about the LG GD900 back in February and now that we’ve finally had a chance to play with it, we’re not ashamed to admit we’re a little enamored. Say whatever you want… This thing is awesome. In a nutshell, it’s the fashion phone to end all fashion phones with some killer functionality on top. The transparent touch-sensitive illuminated keypad (with gesture support!) is sexier than you can imagine, and in fact the entire slide mechanism that runs up the back is the same clear material. The handset is super thin and yet manages to pack an 8 megapixel camera into the rear of the case. LG’s new S-Class 3D UI fantastic — responsive, attractive and logical. Think of it as TouchWiz on crank. It supports gestures, multi-touch and features tons of 3D transitions and menus. Hit the jump for some more pics and, if you’re comfortable with your masculinity, drool over the GD900 along with us.

The LG “Arena” KM900 gets official

The LG “Arena” KM900 gets official

LG announced the launch of its newest flagship multimedia phone this morning, the Arena KM900, and now we have yet another handset to lust after as we wonder if it will ever make it to US soil. To start things off, the Arena features the unique 3D S-Class touchscreen User Interface with a cube-based layout comprised of four customizable home screens that provide access to the major features of the phone. LG is pitching the Arena as a multimedia powerhouse that will incorporate both Dolby and DivX technologies but we’ve seen a few handsets recently *cough-Acme i8910-cough* that are certainly more capable in that area. Move past all that and you’re looking at 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, a 3″ touchscreen with 480 x 800 resolution and two cameras (one being a rear-facing 5 megapixel shooter). Additional details on the Arena, along with some surprises from the sound of things, will be announced at LG’s press conference at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
