LG today announced the release of its new fully loaded multimedia phone, LG ARENA (LG-KM900) in Europe. More info:
ARENA is LG's new flagship model for 2009 that offers an exhilarating audio and video experience with top-of-the-line multimedia features made possible by LG's intuitive new 3D S-Class User Interface.
Multimedia Features that Come Alive: Brilliant Sound and Incredibly Vivid Screen with More Storage
ARENA includes the Dolby Mobile technology for a globally released handset, to deliver an exhilarating surround sound experience for video content and enhance the sound of music content. Its 3.0-inch WVGA screen has four times sharper resolution than standard QVGA screens, meaning users can always find the clearest viewing experience for DVD-quality DivX or Xvid movies on-the-go.
D1 recording capability captures DVD-resolution video that looks great even when played back on a large TV. A range of equalizer presets to fit all genres and individual tastes make the experience even better. Hundreds of music and movie files can be handled with expanded 40GB storage, including 8GB of internal memory and a micro SD slot. Its powerful battery offers up to 30 hours of MP3 playtime and 300 hours of standby time.
Video and photos can easily be shared on social networking sites, thanks to 3G HSDPA 7.2 networks and Wi-Fi. FM transmitter and 3.5 mm audio jack always leave space for users who want to enjoy their music in the car, at home on a stereo or anywhere with preferred ear phones. Other advanced features include Google Mobile Service*, A-GPS and geo-tagging.
3D S-Class User Interface: Fast, Intuitive, and Fun Way of Enjoying Your Multimedia Life
Debuting on ARENA, LG?s new S-Class UI was designed from the very start to leverage the advantages of touchscreens and eliminate unnecessary menus and steps. At its core is a 3D cube layout that provides four customizable home screens. Users can have much faster and easier access to all features by flipping the cube with just the flick of a finger. The Elastic Lists feature is one of a kind with list items being stretched like a rubber band when touched, eliminating the extra step of switching to a new screen for other choices. Images in the Floating Image Gallery cascade off the screen randomly when the phone is turned horizontally, not only providing great convenience in viewing photos, but searching as well. Users can see photos taken on the same day by sliding a finger from top to bottom and those taken on different days by dragging a finger from left-to-right.
Fast yet smooth 3D transitions between menus are made possible with the help of a powerful AMD processor. The quick touch response and multi-touch capabilities greatly enhance the web surfing experience for users.
LG ARENA comes in silver and black titanium colour schemes and will be available for purchase starting in March in major European markets. Please visit http://arena.lgmobile.com for more information on LG ARENA.
