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.
