LG Electronics today officially launched its new LG Mini (LG GD880), featuring enhanced mobile web and social network experience with ultra-fast Phantom Browser supporting HTML 5. The LG Mini has a 3.2" touch screen, offers push email, 5.0 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, FM radio and 7.2 Mbps HDSPA. More info from today's announcement:
LG Mini is the first phone to use LG's HTML 5-compatible Phantom Browser, which offers a much faster and more stable internet experience. Mini also includes special internet applications and social network connection features that make keeping in touch with online friends easier than ever.
Social network connectivity is fully integrated into LG Mini so keeping in touch with online friends and making updates on popular social networks sites including Facebook and Twitter is simpler and faster. LG Mini also supports LG Air Sync, which wirelessly synchronizes information and data to a computer, the web and the phone. Even if the phone is misplaced, important data can still be accessed from any PC.
LG's new On Screen Phone feature makes controlling Mini even easier. It shows the phone?s interface on a computer screen so files can be dragged and dropped directly from the phone to a computer.
Maximum Convenience Online Applications provide access to late-breaking information and entertainment in real-time. Applications from BBC News and AccuWeather are pre-installed and content from partners Amazon, CNN International, The New York Times, eBay and Fox News will be available through the LG Widget Gallery.
The LG Mini will be available in April starting in Europe followed by other regions. Prices will vary country-to-country.
